Easter Pom Pom Painting
With each school holiday, the craft box inevitably comes out especially if it’s raining.
Isabelle loves all crafts so I use Pinterest as my inspiration for new ideas for us to do together.
I saw the Easter pom pom painting and wondered if it might have been a little bit young for her at six, but she absolutely loved the idea.
What I tend to do now is set up our ‘station’ with all the materials that we need and usually she’s over the moon at having something new to try.
What you will need:
- White card
- Wooden pegs
- Poster paint
- Craft Pom Poms
Pinch a pom pom with a wooden peg and allocate it to the colour. You will need the same number of pegs and pom-poms for each colour you choose.
Drawing an egg shape onto the card, use the pom poms to create a pattern of your choice.
Isabelle mixed it up a little bit by using different sized pom poms.
For younger children and pre-schoolers this would promote good hand-eye co-ordination. Isabelle took it one step further by creating not just Easter Eggs, but dinosaur and alien eggs as well.
Once the eggs were dry we cut them out. I was going to make them into Easter Bunting but Isabelle thought that it would be a good idea to make an Easter Egg hide and seek game so we did that instead.
