That is where you use two incompatible mediums to create a work of art.
I have seen on the Internet how people have used a hot glue gun to create a design on a paper and paint over it.
So, I created this resist art I Am Thankful activity for your grandkids to do.
Here is a list of items you will need:
I Am Thankful free printable
hot glue gun
Print out the I Am Thankful page. Trace around the words and the pumpkins with the hot glue. Let it cool.
Or, you can put some acrylic paint on a lid from a plastic whipped topping container (a.k.a. Cool Whip), slightly thin the paint with water, and then use a sponge paint brush to paint over the whole paper.
They could use only one color. Or they can be creative and use more colors blending where the edges of the colors meet. Creativity is the modus operandi here, folks.
Ta da! Here is the finished product.
(Where is Emma? you ask. The length of her attention span was all used up in painting. She didn’t want to sit to have her picture taken. Oh well . . .)
If you really want to be creative, draw a design freehand on your paper. It could just be just lines and squiggle or it could be shapes like hearts, stars, or flowers. Or, you could write your grandchild’s name. If your grandchild is old enough, let her use the glue gun to create her own design.
