This past weekend I did get some craft time with my niece. Since I haven't blogged in a while, I decided to share her wonderful work.
I have a box of stickers, scissors, and a glue stick that are designated for craft time. I brought out a box of washi tape and two stamp sets. She started with the "critters" as seen above and since they had party accessories, she threw them a party. She colored everything in with Crayola markers.
She used washi tape to detail both scenes. She glued them together with glue stick and wrote this on the back:
Once this was done, she decided to make some more scenes for the cats that I had stamped and colored with crayons. She made good use of my old sticker pile.
Cat Carnival Craziness: Inspired by some stickers of the fair, my niece decided that the other set of cats I had colored should be at the carnival. These cats, we decided, look a bit on the creepy side with their button eyes and tilted heads...just perfect for a crazy carnival. Because we needed to clear our dining room table for lunch, I didn't get to cut out the littlest cat but she added it in by tearing around it. She knew that a carnival wasn't complete without a table for games and a snowcone stand so she drew them in.
We had a great time creating our little scenes and she even added a travel sticker to the back of each to let people know where in the world you could find these scenes.
With limited supplies and a good imagination, art springs forth.
