This one goes out to all of you with little ones, ones that scribble and just love free art.
Masking tape, as low tack as possible
crayons, pens, pencils, glitter, paint
I know that I keep going on about not passing your perfectionism on to your children and letting them express themselves, but it is so true. I also know that there are lots of people out there who don't craft with their children because they fear the mess, well this is one for you.
By using masking tape, you can tape the paper on to the table, which is great for smaller children and stopped the paper moving.
You can also use different width tape, as the aim is to create a border of blank paper around the drawing.
Mini loves scribbling or making the paper colourful and this is a great way of letting him express himself. I have also used this method with stamping and fabric printing.
So if you are inspired to do any crafty things with your children over the next couple of weeks then please link to me with the McLinky as I look to look at the things you all make and do.
We are going to be doing some Easter projects so please keep some egg shells for out next showcase!
