I have got to start letting my husband come up with my titles….or writing these posts when I’m more awake,one of those two.
We’ve used this technique before here, but I wanted to change things up a little for Easter.
Glue (we used homemade but any water based glue would work)
Tissue Gift Paper
Plastic Shopping Bag
I cut a plastic shopping bag in half and taped each half to our table.(One for each of my littles.)
I then drew an egg on one bag (for Gizmo) and a bunny on an another (for the Kid as she wasn’t feeling eggy )with a sharpie marker.
The kids added the tissue paper squares wherever they wanted to on their plastic bag templates. *This is pretty fail-safe, so do not worry if you or your child go over the template, you will cut out the shape later! If your tissue tears while your child is dabbing the glue on top just patch it up with one of your tissue squares…trust me it works fine.
We let this dry for about two hours and then I was able to easily peel their tissue paper art off.
The sharpie bleeds itself onto the tissue paper and this makes it very easy to cut out the shape that has been drawn on the plastic bag.
This is a great way to re-use any tissue gift wrap that you’ve received with a present, especially if it’s too crumbled to use in wrapping another present.
Side note: You may have noticed that his post is very Littles free, this is because when Gizmo did the craft while her sis was at school….I forgot to take pictures until after she had finished (bloggy fail) and because I almost forgot again when the Kid did hers after school.
