Use office supplies as both a material for inspiring creating or as a finishing touch! Materials Office supplies (paper clips, stickers, elastics etc.) Glue Pre-made artwork OR paper and paints Smock Craft Tray Directions Approach 1 Glue or stick office supplies to a blank piece of paper. This serves as a starting or inspiration point for creating around the supplies. Don your smock and paint away! Our daughter decided to go with reinforcements, painting circular sponges and acrylics, followed by a watercolour wash on her pieces. Go with whatever materials excite you- markers, watercolours etc. Another finished piece: You could also experiment with removing the office supplies to create negative space images on your piece: OR Approach 2 Add office supplies to already existing piece as a bit of embellishment. We suggest arranging them before you glue them on, so that way you can experiment (as our daughter says!) with the placement. Purpose Exploring different materials Safety Notes Items such as elastic bands, paper clips etc. can be coking hazards, therefore be sure to keep them out of the reach of children ages 0-3 or those that tend to put things in their mouths.
