Cling Film Art is a fabulous art process for little kids and great one for parents too, as it is virtually mess free!
Crafty kids adore spreading out the lumps and bumps, merging the colours to make pretty patterns ; providing a sensory element to the art process. It’s an art process we’ve revisited time and time again, and one we’ll continue to use for many of our projects.
Cling Film Art Materials:
Card or very thick paper.
Paint – Various Colours
Cling Film Art
Start by squirting dollops of paint in various directions, colours and amounts onto card.
This is a great opportunity for your crafty kid to work those fine motor skills by….
- Applying different amounts of pressure to the bottles to control the flow of paint.
- Co-ordinating the amount of paint with movement across the card.
Using two hands, begin spreading the paint.
Angel’s initial reaction was priceless: she couldn’t quite understand why her hands weren’t covered in paint!
Once over the initial surprise, she couldn’t stop laughing as she spread the paint, merging the colours, feeling and smoothing out the funny lumps and bumps.
Angel quickly asked to do “more, more, more”… Thankfully we have a good supply of paint and card!
Once your crafty kid has finished spreading the paint, carefully remove the cling film and then leave to dry.
These super funky paintings could be left as they are or used for other crafts, such as decorating an old glass jar, maybe even a flower pot or creating cards!
We used ours our Cling Film Art to create this simple yet effective flower picture…
What will your crafty kid do with theirs?
