I pulled out some tissue paper, white glue, scissors and a couple pieces of construction paper.
I cut the tissue paper into small squares and I cut out a stem and two leaves from the green construction paper. Then I drew a tulip shape on the brown paper - this is the guideline for where to put the tissue paper. Ella helped me glue the stem and leaves onto the paper. This was fun for her; she loved patting it down after the glue was on.
Before I could tell her what we were going to do, she grabbed all the tissue paper...and posed for the camera.
In case you never got to do this type of craft, here's what you do with the tissue paper:
wrap it over the end of the pencil and dip it in glue
|press it onto the paper and hold a few seconds|
We scrunched up the paper and dipped it into the glue and here's our finished picture! Not too shabby.
Although, I should mention Ella abandoned ship about 3/4 of the way through to organize her pencil crayons and markers...
