Two year olds don’t have the longest attention spans so most of our creative sessions are short and sweet.
I am accumulating baskets full of craft foam, sheets of felt, tissue paper, ribbons, coloured card and papers. I already had drawers full of sequins, buttons and a myriad of fun and sparkly tid-bits (that’s just the kinda person I am!) It then becomes really easy to pull down a couple of baskets, some glue and scissors, and begin on a free, open-ended craft.
This little activity took just five minutes. Cakie squeezed some PVA onto a piece of felt and then added small felt shapes that I had cut out for her, some buttons, sequins and some sparkly fabric stars.
Stick, stick, stick, stick, stick…..all finished!
And I thought I should stay ahead of myself so I checked to see if I had a spare frame the right size, and framed it then and there!
A new, striking little piece of collage art-work for my dresser in the kitchen.
This craft made me smile, as it is something we love doing in our house. So simple and yet Red Ted is always so happy. Lovely. Your shapes are so different and tactile too. Perfect!
Looks amazing!!! Love it! And I love felt… not sure why…
What a beautiful picture, it looks so great framed too! Very Christmasy with the red and green.
