Does anyone else have a bin (or bins…) stored away of your kiddo’s artwork? They can be very prolific creators. This DIY allows for a lot of creative freedom for them, and reuse for you!
All you need is a roll of paper and art-making supplies of your choice. We used tempera cakes and watercolor palettes. Crayons, colored pencils, and markers would also be great for this project with less dry-time.
I started by rolling out the paper on the floor, using a canvas drop cloth to protect the hardwood. If you don’t have a drop cloth- an old sheet, some newspapers, or the dollar store table cloth in the back of your pantry from that birthday party 6 years ago will work.
I prefer to let my little artist do her thing, but you could show them a pattern or use holiday cookie cutters as stamps. The nice part of this is that they can keep going until they are tuckered out.
