Happy Mother's Day


Tissue paper is inexpensive and can be found in lots of vibrant colours. Once wet, the colour leaks easily from the tissue paper and can be used to make some interesting art. Pre schoolers will have fun scrunching and slightly older children can turn their artwork into other interesting pictures.

Time: 15 minutes plus drying overnight
Age: Under 5s and 5 to 10s
Level: Easy

Materials
Cardstock
Tissue paper in different colours
Water
Large paintbrush

Method
Brush a little water over your card to dampen it.
Scrunch up the tissue paper into loose balls.

Press the scrunched up tissue paper onto the top third of the card.
Wet the tissue paper with the big paintbrush until it has been well soaked. This will allow the dye to leak out.

Leave to dry overnight.

Once dry, peel off the tissue paper to reveal the coloured pattern left behind.

Use a green felt tip pen, crayon or pencil to draw the flower stalks and leaves.

Younger children can just scrunch the tissue paper and cover a piece of card or paper. The scrunching is lots of fun.
