It is my friend’s daughter’s 6th birthday and by now you guessed the theme .All little girls are obsessed with this movie .. yes Disney’s Frozen .We planned on making a card for little A and the card is inspired by FROZEN colors . So , you can say the idea of Frozen inspired art project for kids was born while planning for a birthday card .
Materials Needed :
White sheet of paper
Snowflakes Foam stickers
Watercolor Paints (Frozen inspired colors – blues and purple)
Glitter/ glitter glue pens
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 .
