|I see a dragonfly!|
This is a great activity to learn about art concepts such as contour drawing and positive and negative space. It is quick and a good project to have on hand for a last minute fun project. Combine this with a trip outside on a sunny day to do some real cloud-spotting and you have an awesome time!
- Blue construction paper
- Pencil with eraser
- Elmer's glue
- Cotton balls (large, fluffy ones work better than the tiny ones)
1. Draw the outline of a simple item onto a piece of paper. Some ideas include a car, flower, butterfly or dragonfly. The sky's the limit (pun intended!!). Remember to keep it simple--don't include any inside details or make any of the parts too small.
2. Fill in the interior of your shape with glue. Liquid white school glue will work better than a glue stick.
3. Attach cotton balls to fill in the shape you made.
You are done! I told you it was super-easy!!
