I’ve always loved the fine art of pottery. I wish to try pottery with the students but I can’t find a good enough clay yet.

In the meantime, remember the kids’ paper twisting project previously? Refer to it here. Let’s get them to train their ‘pottery’ skills using crepe paper instead 🙂

We will need a large toilet paper roll. Glue a cardboard at the base and let dry.

We’ll need lots of strips of crepe paper.

Twisting crepe paper is good to train the little kids’ motor skills and coordination.

Apply glue on the toilet paper roll and paste the twisted crepe paper, rolling and repeating with new strips of paper until you’ve covered the entire roll.

The kids busy with their masterpiece.

The completed crepe paper pencil holder.

The kiddo decorated it to be a colourful alien bunny ^_^

Another kid did this creative BEE!

Aren’t they beautiful? I’d be very proud to have them on my working station 🙂

Let’s make a honeycomb using bubble wrap today 😀

Honeycomb

Paint a piece of bubble wrap

Place the painted surface down on a piece of paper

Paint your thumb and stamp all over as the bees

Paint the wings and draw lines on the bees.

Now comes the fun part. Mix some paint with PVA glue.

Drip the mixture onto the honeycomb

Hold the paper up and see the paint mixture flow creating honey in the honeycomb 😀

Optional : I cut some ovals out of yellow foam and get the kids to paste them onto the honeycomb. Paste plastic wings too.

It’s been sometime since we last did a footprint art. Today, inspired by Handprint and Footprint Arts, let’s do a footprint bee 🙂

Footprint Bee

Paint your foot yellow. Unlike when he was younger, my boy finds it rather ticklish these days 😀

Stamp your painted foot onto a piece of paper.

Help your little one paint three black lines across the footprint.

Paint your finger tip white.

Print your fingertip on the bee as the eyes.

What to do on a bored rainy day? Get your water paint out and let’s start finger printing!
First I let him do some ‘practise’ on a piece of paper.
Upon reaching the ‘pro‘ level, I let him do the finger printing on a new piece of paper! 😀
There! After the paint has dried up, I help him draw some stripes and wings and his finger prints are now Buzzing Busy Bees!
