Materials Needed :
White sheet of paper
Snowflakes Foam stickers
Watercolor  Paints (Frozen inspired colors – blues and purple)
Glitter/ glitter glue pens
Sharpie

Instructions :
On  a white sheet of paper ,  randomly arrange various size Foam snowflakes stickers.
We started with my  six year old  placing the stickers where he wanted them . He sounded very happy choosing the spots because generally it is mom who is directing  with instructions.

Now he  painted  over the foam stickers. I wanted him to do three shades of colors but he was more comfortable in doing two shades . The two shades are frozen theme Favorite colors  blue and purple shades.

After my son finished painting , we kept it to dry for couple of hours .

Now the fun part … peeling  the foam stickers ,  Ashrith is been  waiting to do this .  The foam stickers are easy to peel  for little hands. He was too excited to peel and reveal the snowflakes.

Fold the painted art sheet paper the way you like the card.. a rectangle or a square.
Use Sharpie or paint to add details wherever required.
Last step is to add glitter , this will enhance the beauty of the card.

Quick tips :
To make little glitter circles , I used pen cap as a stamp , dipped it in glue and made a print . Later sprinkled glitter over it .I prefer using glitter glue pens , as they are not as messy as the glitter powders but in this project I used both form of glitters.
To make it more fun for a Frozen fan , you can add Olaf ,Anna and Elsa stickers too.

Lessons Learnt :
Develop Fine motor skills : Peeling stickers and painting helps build fine motor skills .

Instructions:
Draw several stems and leaves on a white paper using green marker.
Ask your child to peel the backing from the shapes and press them above the stems to make flowers. My four year old was just fine with it as Foam stickers are easy to peel and stick .
I made one on the yellow paper and then Ashrith made his own flowers on a white sheet of paper .
If you notice , I used triangles to make a bud and he used squares for flowers which is quite interesting way of using geometric shape foam stickers to make flowers .

Lessons Learnt:

Recogination and learning about shapes and colors.

Kids use Imagination and creativity to transform basic shapes into flowers.

Peeling stickers helps in improving  fine motor skills

Quick Tip : Older Kids : If your child is old enough to draw  ,he /she can draw the stems or use green foam stickers to make a stem pattern .   
Activity for Toddlers and Preschoolers : If you are working with toddlers , you can draw the outline of flower shapes too . The little ones pick the right sticker to match the shape outline . Thus,making it great activity to learn matching shapes.
