Supplies:

  • bubble wrap

  • coffee can (or any container that is sturdy)

  • ducktape

  • watercolors

  • paint brushes


Directions:

  1. Cut a piece of bubble wrap and fold it over the top of the can (with the lid on).

  2. Use duct tape to secure it so it’s tight.

  3. Mix a color and paint it on the bubble wrap. Try not to push too hard — you want to paint the bubbles, but not the crevices in between.

  4. Paint fast before the paint dries, then turn it over onto the paper and press down.


It may take a few stamps to get it right, but the beauty of this project is that even if you are too heavy-handed, or the opposite — it’s printmaking and it’s supposed to be imperfect!

I am a big believer in never going for perfection. Point out to your kids how beautiful each stamp is — no two are alike (just like snowflakes).


Painting with Yarn

Materials for Yarn Painting

  • Washable paint

  • Pieces of yarn

  • Containers to hold your paint

  • Popsicle sticks

  • Art paper

Directions for Yarn Painting

1. Place some tempera paint into containers. (We used some small jars, but something with a wider rim would be easier for little hands.)

2. Cut up some pieces of yarn.

3. Dip a piece of yarn into the paint. Use a popsicle stick to push the yarn down so it gets fully covered.

4. Pull the yarn out of the paint, place it onto your art paper, and then lift it. You’ll see a cool design! Repeat this step with various colors to create your work of art.

5. Optional: Try dragging the yarn on your paper and see what happens!
