This time we worked on some cutting and gluing skills. I had the kids draw a picture that I then outlined with a Sharpie. Then I used an exacto knife to cut out some of the shapes. Meanwhile the kids went to town cutting things from magazines. I told them to choose anything that they liked. They both did great, but J really was funny with the scissors. Apparently he needs to practice!
Then we glued the the magazine clippings to a paper to make a collage.
H got a little help from her Aunt Molly after J was done and taking his rest. H is a lot more committed and particular in her crafting, I am finding. :)
The final projects turned out pretty cute. J made a spider web and H made a flower, an ice cream cone and a cherry.
I had to do this one too. I went for a sewing machine. It might end up in a frame in my craft room. It's so bright and happy.
