She laid down on very large piece of paper and I drew her outline.
She then add details and coloured it.
We cut the outline out, just because she wanted to carry it around everywhere :)
Yesterday we recreated this, with the small change of adding some stickers, paper scraps and other bits to have ever more fun ;)
Outline your child :)
Here we used 2 x A3 sheets of paper and tape it together to fit Ela's size.
You can use many A4 pages too ;)
Gather any craft accessories you have at home, including glue and scissors.
I added some mirror too so Ela could explore her face :)
Let your child do whatever they want with their outline using materials provided :)
Let the fun begin!
I suggest filling large spaces with a paper scraps, it's easier than colouring and gives some pretty effects ;)
And some sequins to add more texture.
There we have!
Our second Ela.
Well not quite but we're happy with it :)
I then cut the outline of the page.
They don't have to look like themselves, but dressed as astronauts and robots using kitchen foil or be a funny hairy monsters using yarn, is up to them who they will like to be.
At this moment Ela nr 2 is is checking on progress of our refurbishment in Ela's room.
Who knows, she might even integrate with the room design...
Stay tuned, few inspirations to come on the way I promise ;)
Enjoy your crafts!
