Posted by Merryn | Posted in Art Crafts | Posted on 24-10-2011 | 11,120 views


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˜€

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

Candle Polka Dots

Today we are going to make a different kind of art. An art that requires the use of candle and flame. This requires close supervision of an adult. NEVER let your kid do this unsupervised.

Candle Polka Dots

First, I demo to my son how I lit a candle and let the wax drip on the art block.

Once I’m confident that he understands, I let him try.

He then paint the art block with various colours

Light a candle and let the wax drip on the colours.

Use a sponge and paint the whole art block with a darker color. We use black πŸ™‚

Once the paint dries, use a coin to scrape off the candles and you’ll get beautiful dots of colours!

A beautiful work of art πŸ˜€

Coming up – See how we use the same technique to create a Christmas themed art πŸ™‚

We are making an abstract art today, with crayons πŸ™‚

Abstract Art

We’ll need some crayon shavings

Spread them onto a piece of construction paper

Cover with another piece of paper

Use a slightly heated up iron to heat up the crayon shavings.

Please be careful while handling hot iron. Make sure the little ones are no where nearby.

Get the little ones to peel the papers.

The abstract art is done.
