tissue paper, vegetable stamps + little kid fun (oh, and a new look!)

Monday, April 4, 2011 – Filed under: children,creativity,kids crafts,kids friendly,Uncategorized ::

Just in time for spring, this blog has a new look – and a new home (largely to fit with our new website here). I hope you like it! I’m sort of still getting used to it.  Change is refreshing, and rejuvenating, even if it’s a little scary sometimes.  So on this beautiful spring Monday morning, I thought I’d share a craft we did recently.

After lots of tissue paper ripping and careful glueing…

She had herself an ocean and a sky, with a bright spring sun.

And then we used a potato to make a duck stamp, carving it with a sharp knife (mom did this part).

I had to work at it a few times to make sure the duck was thick enough to take paint and still appear as a duck on the paper.

And some yellow Tempera paint later…

… she made a row of quacking yellow ducks.

Wishing you a wonderfully creative Monday.
