Here’s another easy craft I came up with the other day. I cut squares of foam sheets into tiny squares. (Madeline helped cut some, too.) Then we briefly discussed mosaics, and I showed Madeline some pictures of the art form in a kids’ art book we have. I then asked what she would like to create with her foam “tiles.” Once she chose her subjects, I “drew” them with glue and gave her an assortment of colorful tiles to create her simple mosaic-like art.
This kept her busy for about 45 minutes, and she asked to do more. You can often find foam sheets on sale or at dollar stores, and the only other supplies you need are scissors, card stock (to glue the “tiles” onto), and glue. To add a glittery effect, your child can brush the foam squares with glitter glue after they’ve finished creating their mosaic.
I just feel so artsy.
