25. Hands & Feet Portraits
My daughter got a real kick out of this one! The idea is to trace their hands and feet onto a large piece of paper (they might need help with this part), and then let them draw their head, body, arms and legs in a way that looks like they are attached to their hands and feet. This gives the impression that they are floating away in space! This is a fabulous classroom activity, too. Read more and see additional drawings like this here.
26. Paper Weaving
I have great memories of doing this in school, but never realized the amazing things you can make with this technique! You’re basically going to fold one piece of paper in half and cut several slits in the paper where your paper strips will be weaved in and out of. Try doing this with paintings and photos for a really cool effect! Check out this blog for lots of paper weaving ideas.
27. Glue Painting
You would probably never guess that food coloring and glue are a good mix! But, this simple technique will prove otherwise. It makes for really pretty sun catchers the kids will have a blast creating. Aside from the drying time, it’s quick and easy with very few supplies needed. I think it would be fun for kids of all ages! Go get the instructions here.
