H For Holiday Home – Get Crafty #BlogchatterA2Z

When I was thinking about what activity to plan for this letter, Eira said H is for home and then the idea occured to me. I asked Eira what would your holiday home look like? Anything you want can be in that home. Your holiday, your home, your plan!!

She loved the idea and started thinking all that she wanted in her holiday home. She took a couple of days and then gave me a list of things she wanted.

She loves the world under water, so I was not surprised to see it being a part of her holiday home. Let’s see what supplies she asked for.

Stickers according to the chosen theme
Any other material that your child choses.

There are no instructions to adhere to as it is supposed to be your child’s holiday home.

Eira’s holiday home will have a mermaid friend, sea creatures who will play slide and reside in a pool.
What a perfect holiday home right!

Ask your child what their holiday home would be like? A pet dinosaur in the garden playing fetch, a spaceship landing on the roof or living underwater in a submarine?
Let their imagination run wild…

We have made a quick video of Eira’s holiday home.

Hope you like it!

G For Glue Drawing with Pastel Chalk – Get Crafty #BlogchatterA2Z

This craft is super interesting. Kids usually first draw with a pencil and color the picture but with this piece of art, kids either draw and then outline with glue or even skip using pencil and directly draw with glue. It definitely becomes more interesting to see how it all works out.

Colored chalk or soft pastels are used in this project. They are messy yet blend in so beautifully that I highly recommend having them in your kid’s art supplies.

Black chart paper
Bottle of fevicol
Pencil and eraser
Colored chalk/soft pastels

Let’s get started

1. Go alongwith your child’s ideas of drawing. We have chosen underwater theme here.

2. Let them draw with a pencil and then squeeze glue to outline the whole drawing.

3. Let the glue dry up. It will take around 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size of your drawing and where you place it. We keep it under the sun and that sped up the drying process. To our surprise, the glue started turning transparent as it dried. Many of us I’m sure didn’t know of this.

4. You have your canvas ready to be filled with colors.
5. Chalk colors create a lot of dust and also need blending with fingertips to even it out. 6. Make sure to cover all.the nooks and crannies inside each section made by the glue to cover the black paper.

Your Glue drawing is ready.

We have created a quick video when Eira created her underwater glue drawing.

Hope you enjoy it!
