Today, we are making an extremely simple but fun artwork. All we will need is paper and some liquid paint in bottles.

Abstract Art

Fold the paper half and open again. Get the kids to pour paint all over the paper. The kids will love pouring paint all over!

Fold the paper half and flatten it, spreading the paint inside along the way.

Slowly unfold the paper and the kids will be surprised to discover how the paints look like now!

This is one quick, simple and fun project to do with the kids πŸ˜€

Halloween is around the corner and it’s time to make some creepy crafts πŸ˜€

Toilet Paper Roll Halloween Bats

Cut a line through a toilet paper roll to open it.

Cut wings and two ears out of another toilet paper roll

There, the bat is already forming. Now all we need to do is paint it black.

Paint the toilet paper roll, wings and ears black

Paint your thumb white

Stamp your painted thumb on the toilet paper roll as the eyes. Paint your pointer black and stamp as the eyeball.

After the success of making our very own Pyssla Beads Angry Bird keychain, we proceeded to making coasters today.

Angry Bird coasters *well, the one in the middle is NOT Angry Bird though, it’s DOMO πŸ˜€*

It’s basically the same as making keychain except we don’t hook a key ring on it.

Red Angry Bird Coaster

I wanted to add background to make the coaster square but it turned out too large for a coaster so I scrapped the idea totally. Let this be a unique coaster that is neither round nor square πŸ˜€

The coasters, keychains and even fridge magnets are now on sale in the Studio. Coming soon is the green pig and yellow bird πŸ˜€

A student showed me a picture of an Angry Bird made of Pyssla beads and asked me if I can make that for him. Well, we tried and guess what? We made a key chain out of it!

I think we got it right… πŸ˜€

P/S: I really would like to give credit to the person who created the pyssla design for this Angry Bird but I just don’t know where my student got the picture from. If you are that person, please do drop me a line and I’ll link it back to you. Thank you.

Here’s how to insert the keychain to the Angry Bird:
* Poke a hole in the Angry Bird and insert the keychain

* The bird will be angrier coz u poked it

* It doesnt like to be poked
Cheers and have a nice day πŸ˜€

Abstract Art – Bubble painting

Today we are going to have fun with bubbles!

Bubble print art

We’ll need a shallow bowl, water, washing-up liquid and paints

Pour water into a shallow bowl

Add the washing-up liquid

Squeeze in some red paint

Using a balloon pump, pump up the mixture. I refrained from letting the kids use straw to blow the mixture as kids are kids, they might accidentally SUCK the mixture instead of BLOWING!

Keep pumping the mixture until the bubbles are almost over the edge of the dish

Place a piece of paper on the bubbles until they popped

If you don’t get the desired amount of bubbles, add more washing up liquid. Sometimes, the bubbles are too faint, add more paint into the mixture in that case

There, better now

Repeat the process until you covered the entire paper

You may want to add more colours to the mixture

And MORE paints! πŸ˜€

If the mixture gets too dark as a result of mixing too many colours, discard the mixture and start all over again
