Our kids are getting into collage (especially after getting corrugated paper for Christmas) and we were definitely inspired by Art Camp LA’s beautiful Lunar New Year Roosters: (https://www.artcampla.com/new-blog/2017/1/23/year-of-the-rooster-project There are tonnes of goodies there!) We decided to make eggs with neon colours- something a bit different than the traditional pastels! Materials Newspaper Watercolour pucks (or liquid watercolour would work) Paintbrushes Scissors Glue Corrugated paper (you could use other types of paper you may have) Paintings (These were off-cuts of other projects- be sure to communicate with your child before re-purposing a work) Cardstock Garland Materials Egg template egg or a pencil/eraser to draw your own Beads Cord Needle We always find these items helpful too: Smock Craft tray Directions Don your smock. Paint your newspaper and allow it to dry overnight. Collect other types of paper with various textures and characteristics. Rip your papers and add them to a thicker page such as cardstock, gluing them down. Our son was really into controlled ripped lengths, but go with whatever shapes you like. Allow to dry overnight. Print out the egg template or better yet, draw your own, cutting it out. Lay it overtop of your collaged page. Cut out your eggs. We then took our eggs and created a garland- what will you do with yours? Purpose Combining and working with different types of paper. Safety Notes We suggest that you wear a smock and use a craft tray to protect your clothing and surfaces. Use scissors with care and adult supervision. Cord, yarn etc. can be a strangulation hazard, therefore be sure to use with direct supervision and for its intended purpose. Beads can be a choking hazard, therefore be sure to keep them out of the reach of children ages 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put things into their mouths.
