Crafting Your Spooky Silhouettes!
- Heavy duty paper (for the base of your craft)
Various different colors of bleeding tissue paper, cut into small squares
A spray bottle (we have a continuous spray one that my kids LOVE!)
A tray (a cookie sheet with edges works just fine)
Either pre-cut shapes or construction paper to cut out shapes of your own
Step 1 Place the paper inside the tray and spray down. You will want your water bottle to be on mist mode. Make sure it’s nice and damp.
Step 2 Add pieces of tissue paper all over the wet paper. You want them to stick, so if they’re not, spray the paper down more. Overlapping colors will give you a really neat effect, so don’t be afraid to let your kid go to town!
Step 3 Once you have all of your tissue paper laid down, spray down again.
Step 4 After everything has had a chance to dry, peel off the dried tissue paper (it is oddly satisfying) and throw it away.
Step 5 Cut out a figure from your construction paper- the simpler the figure is, the better it looks. Cookie cutters make great stencils if you don’t have pre-cut shapes.
Step 6 Glue on the cut out, and hang up your masterpiece!
We absolutely LOVE seeing your preschoolers learning through play! Please take photos and videos of your child engaging in sensory activities and share your photos with us on Facebook and Instagram!
