Re-purpose party supplies as a creating prompt by taking honeycomb decorations and turning them into 3D creations! Materials Honeycomb decorations (ours came from Ikea, but they are often found at party stores) Paper Pencil/ eraser Creating supplies (we used liquid watercolours, sand/glue, paint sticks, paint pens, permanent markers- use what you have) Glue gun/glue We always find these items useful too: Directions Sketch out your ideas, thinking about what you will make your honeycomb into. What are you interested in? What part of your creation do you want to “pop” out. Trace around the base of the honeycomb so you know what will be taken up by that space. We painted slightly inside of the circle to have a clean edge when the honeycomb was glued on. Start painting your background in layers. Think about starting with what would be furtherest away if your creation were real. Wait for each layer to dry. Another practice that our daughter likes is outlining the perimeter and then painting in the inside area, as this contains the paint of sorts. Once your project is completed, create accents with your paint pens and permanent markers. Glue your honeycomb on, starting with one side and then the other. Back your work with a corresponding colour and hang your piece up to display! Pin this idea Purpose Repurposing different items in different ways. Safety Notes We suggest that you use a tray and a smock to protect your clothing and surfaces. Use a glue gun with care and direct, adult supervision.
