Last week a friend dropped in with a few art supplies for Junior. She had been preparing a papier-mache art project for her two girls and thought we might like some home made paste and balloons to make something for ourselves. This weekend Junior and I finally got around to trying it out.
I must admit that he started out enthusiastically but didn't last too long on the gluing and pasting part of the project so I added a few more layers to his balloon before we hung them up to dry overnight.
However, the next day he was adamant that he wanted to make himself a spider man mask, so with a little red paint and a black marker we had created one in no time.
I did plan to get some blue cellophane for the eyes but I need to wrestle it off him first.
Super heroes are all the go with my 4 year old at the moment! I think I will have to get out the sewing machine now it has been serviced and attempt this beautiful superman cape! What art activities have you been playing with this week? “Come over and play at the Childhood 101 We Play link up”
