Fun paper strips sun craft for kids
It’s definitely no secret that I like to keep everything when it comes to arts and crafts in this household. Today’s set up took less than 5 minutes. It was a simple art prompt from some inspiration I got from Sunny Morton and was the perfect way to re-use some strips of paper we had left over from when we made paper strip flowers but don’t worry if you haven’t got soem strips of paper, it’ll take only a few minutes to cut some; and for this particular craft, the strips really don’t have to be of even width.
The aim is to arrange the paper around a piece of card. It’s best if the card is square, then we cut out a yellow circle and drew a smily face on it before glueing it to the centre. Our almost 6 year old daughter did this one in the pictures. It was an after school project for 20 minutes whilst I tried to catch up on a few household chores.
This is a great activity for kids of any age. Preschoolers will have their own take on how the paper strips should be arranged; so don’t expect the outcome to be the same as in the example above. In fact I’ve included another picture to show how Miss 4 decided to use her materials. At the end of the day, children will be inspired by their own creativity and will gain more
