Arts and crafts is what Ariana and I love doing together. Because Ariana has sooooo much stationary, we decided to make an art box. It was very simple and it was inspired by something Ariana has watched on youtube which made her love doing it even more.
What you need to make an art box:
- shoe box
- golf ball
- water colour paints
- paper plate for the paint
Using one colour at a time, squeeze paint on a paper plate. Have your little one take the golf ball and roll it into the paint and coat the ball. Put the cover back on the box (don’t worry if your little ones painty fingers get on the cover, it gives a personal touch) and have your child shake and slide the box in all directions letting the ball roll all over the box creating cool lines. Repeat these steps as many times as you like with other colours.
It’s never a bore when it comes to arts and crafts for kids, it’s even better when they can paint with their hands and keep it messy. Just let it be, cleaning up paint isn’t too bad. 😉
