Materials: large white paper, bingo daubers or dot markers (the Sunsational brand is much brighter than Do A Dot, and the sponges don’t break as easily), oil pastels, glitter (I really would only use the kind in little shakers and make sure the lid is taped on!), collage papers or foam shapes, plastic gemstones, scissors, glue sticks, white glue, glue brushes, printed black and white pictures of each child’s face
This is inspired by Hatch art studio as seen on Art Bar. The super-fun prompt is “What does your imagination look like?” You can have children try and describe what an imagination is, or also ask: If you close your eyes, what do you imagine? What colors, shapes, or pictures represent your imagination?
- decorate the whole white paper – use oil pastels and daubers first so you don’t get glue from collaging and glitter in your dauber sponges
- for glitter, paint white glue in a small section, then sprinkle glitter (only on wet glue)- kids can shake extra glue into the trash
- try to keep a small section blank around the bottom of the paper for the face, and when the whole paper is ready add glue with the glue stick to the back of the cut-out face and stick on
- definitely hang up on a wall 🙂
