Genius - spray paint faux flowers one color and attach to a canvas and cover with clear box frame
We selected out favorite E.E. Cummings poem and I used raw and unstretched canvas that I first primed with white house paint (I often use this in place of gesso). I let it dry and then went to town writing out the poem- and believe or not I used black shoe polish to write with- one of my favorite supplies when working and writing on canvas to get nice lettering.
Both an art and a very effective fine Motor Skill activity: tightly rolling magazine pages and gluing the edges will create beautiful tubes that can be used in craft projects. Children can gain the benefits from creating them, and then again from using them as stacking sticks, art supplies, counters, and more!
