More glittering

After I made the Christmas tree for them, my kids requested me to allow them to make their own. I thought, why not? Let them have some fun and it is school holiday after all. 

I decided to let them have a little fun with glitters. Not just the normal colour painting. 


What we need.....blue coloured papers, cut-out tree from cardboard (I used milk powder box), glue, toothpicks, cotton balls and of course the glitters.


I have 2 kinds of glitters.

So, let the art class begins!!

If you do not want to get the table all dust with glitters, better place a paper or newspaper on the top of it.

Align the cardboard on the coloured paper. Leave few inches at the bottom. Apply glue on the middle of the tree. Start dashing some gold glitter dusts.


Leave it to dry for few minutes before remove the cardboard from the colour paper.


Then apply some glue on the bottom of the tree. Place the cotton balls one by one.


Same goes with the other glitter. Jan is happily arrange her bear-shaped glitters using toothpick.


She used the facial cotton for her creation. And she even apply some cotton on the tree for the snowy effect.



I did not helped them at all. Just guided Jay and helped him apply the glue and the other work were done by him. Jan just see and follow along. 

Glad they enjoyed themselves with this little fun.

It's really good to see the kids enjoying themselves! :)

That's the most important thing, and arts and crafts helps build their creativity too.

Your little girl has good attention to detail - using a toothpick to arrange the glitter, I wouldn't have the patience myself. Haha.
