    winter art for kids


I have an old plate that I use again and again for kids crafts, this is kept separate to my normal plates and is used so that paints can be accessed more easily.
I've used blue paper to print out my template so that it's easier to show what I'm doing in the photos and video for this craft but by all means use white paper for this instead.
I use washi tape for crafts like this because the sticking power on it is much less than traditional tapes so it's less likely to tear your paper. If I want to be certain that the tape won't tear anything when it's removed then I'll normally stick it to my trousers or something first as this helps remove a bit of the stickiness!
