Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft

Arty Crafty Kids - Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft for kids. A sweet Autumn or Halloween craft that's great for developing fine motor skills! #pumpkin #preschool #preschoolcraft #easykidscraft #craftsforkids #finemotor

This Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft has been designed with preschoolers and very young children in mind. The process of tearing, scrunching, rolling and sticking is wonderful for fine motor skills (or dexterity).

Fine motor skills refer to the coordination of small muscles within the hands, wrists and fingers that are essential for picking objects up and writing.

Crafts that involve a simple and repetitive process, such as our cute little pumpkin craft, give those fine motor skills a fabulous workout.

Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft: Tutorial

Arty Crafty Kids - Tissue Paper Pumpkin Craft for kids. A sweet Autumn or Halloween craft that's great for developing fine motor skills! #pumpkin #preschool #preschoolcraft #easykidscraft #craftsforkids #finemotor

Step 1: Download the template from our members’ area or create your own.

Print the template on to good quality paper or white cardstock. Preschoolers are often generous with their glue application. Cardstock tends to be much better at absorbing the excess and prevents the craft turning into a soggy mess!

Begin tearing tissue paper and rolling/scrunching into balls.

Step 2: Coat a section of the template in a thin layer of PVA glue (liquid form or glue stick) and stick the balls of tissue paper within the pumpkin template.

The size of the tissue paper balls is wholly dependent on your preschooler. They may like teeny tiny balls or big open scrunchy ones – both options are perfect!

Notice from the picture the use of the pincer grip. Without even thinking about it, your infants and preschoolers will be strengthening their little muscles and improving their coordination throughout the craft.

Step 3: Continue filling the pumpkin with tissue paper.

Encourage your Arty Crafty Kids to follow the lines of the pumpkin template and fill the white space by placing the tissue paper balls as closley together as possible.  This is great for hand-eye coordination!

Step 4: Keep going until the pumpkin is completely full!

OPTIONS: 

We love to give our Arty Crafty Kids choice and filling the pumpkin template with tissue paper is just one option!

Here are a few extra ideas: 

  • For older children, take the magazine challenge! This involves using the paper from one magazine and filling the template with torn paper. This adds texture to the finished piece and Arty Crafty Kids use their creativity repurposing prints and images to create art. Example: Butterfly Collage
  • Sticking to a collage theme, perhaps paint the pumpkin template in its appropriate colours first and ask your Arty Crafty Kids to find matching coloured items (buttons, sequins, tissue paper etc) to fill the pumpkin.

These ideas can be applied to many of the templates on offer within the Arty Crafty Kids members area and can be downloaded as many times as you like!

Black Glue Autumn Tree Art

Arty Crafty Kids | Art | Autumn Crafts for Kids | Black Glue Autumn Tree | A beautiful Autumn art project for kids that explores autumn colors within a black glue resist medium. #Autumncraftsforkids #kidscrafts #falltrees #easyartideas

Autumn is the season of colour. Big bold and beautiful colours, and our Black Glue Autumn Tree Art attempts to capture as many of those glorious shades as possible, creating something that I think is rather magical. My eldest described the tree as her very own Faraway Tree (an Eden Blyton reference), that’s filled with fairies and gnomes.

I love her view of the world.

Kids will love the freedom of playing with watercolours; experimenting with water to paint ratios, colour mixing and using their own observations of real trees to recreate the colours they see around them at this time of year.

The watercolours work well against the stark contrast of the black glue outline and the best bit about black glue, is that no matter how many times it’s washed over with paint, it will not dull or alter the overall effect of that beautiful glossy outline.

And you might be surprised to learn that Black Glue is super easy (and cheap!!!) to make at home!

While I would always encourage Arty Crafty Kids to create their own trees, I also have a FREE Downloadable Template to make the project a little easier.

Download the Template HERE: Autumn Tree Black Glue Template

How to Make Black Glue

Our black glue is a combination 3 parts PVA glue and 1 part black acrylic paint.

Mix it all together in a squeezy bottle and thoroughly shake.

Remove the bottle lid and give the mixture a stir with the end of a glue stick/pencil and continue shaking until the glue is black.

Too much paint could make the mixture a little runny, so start off small and don’t worry if it appears grey within the bottle as the glue will dry black!

Once you’ve mixed the black glue, print out our template onto some watercolour paper and simply follow the outline of the Autumn Tree.

Don’t worry if the black glue pools or you end up with uneven lines and splodges, it all adds to the overall effect.

As you can see, ours is less than perfect (and full of charm).

Leave the black glue to dry over night.

We started with painting the bark, using red and brown tones by adding small amounts of water to the paintbrush and mixing with paint. To create lighter shades, add more water.

Arty Crafty Kids | Art | Autumn Crafts for Kids | Black Glue Autumn Tree Art | A beautiful Autumn art project for kids that explores autumn colors within a black glue resist medium. #Autumncraftsforkids #kidscrafts #falltrees #easyartideas

When I think of Autumn colours, I envision many variations of yellow, red, orange, brown and dark green.

In an attempt to capture that variety of shades, we started with the lightest colour – yellow.

Arty Crafty Kids | Art | Autumn Crafts for Kids | Black Glue Autumn Tree Art | A beautiful Autumn art project for kids that explores autumn colors within a black glue resist medium. #Autumncraftsforkids #kidscrafts #falltrees #easyartideas

And then applied the dark shades of green along the branches of the tree.

From these two points of light and dark, we filled the remaining space with colour . Layering yellows over brown and red. Green over yellow and brown, and continued playing until the tree was brimming with colour.

Encourage the Arty Crafty Kids to explore the full watercolour pallet and simply go with the flow, layer different colours and adding more or less water to each application.

The Black Glue Autumn Tree Art project is now complete. 

I hope you’ve loved our latest Autumn Tree art project! for more Autumnal inspiration, take a look at our incredibly popular Autumn Handprint Tree, Autumn Leaf Art and Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Painting.

Apple season has arrived and today I have an incredibly easy Apple Collage Craft to show you that’s perfect for very young children and preschoolers. Offering a fine motor work out with lots of painting, sticking, cutting and gluing, with the added benefit of encouraging children to explore and create with different textures within the theme of ‘the colour Red or Green’.

Paint the Apple Red, Green or a mixture of the two! I offered the girls a variety of tools to paint with including a paintbrush, roller and foam shapes to create interesting shapes within the paint.

I also supplied the girls with white paint to give them the opportunity to explore red light and dark shades through colour mixing.

My eldest came up with the brilliant idea to stick lace onto her apple an then paint the lace red with a roller.

Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft

Leaves are beginning to fall, which means only one thing…Autumn is on its way! Autumn is the season of colour and it’s by far my favourite season. Who doesn’t love scrunching through leaves, the crisp air and the blanket of beautiful colour that sweeps the sky line. Today’s Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft has been created with young children and preschoolers in mind. The bubble wrap adds a tactile textured element to craft and the handy printable allows children to dive straight in – perfect for short attention spans!

Children can observe the natural change that comes with Autumn and attempt to recreate what they see within their art.

Throughout the process, encourage your Arty Crafty Kids to mix their own colours and describe what happens when the colours mix.

Ask questions:

  • How much Red and Yellow do you need to make Orange?
  • How do you make different tones of Orange (Yellow, Red, Green)?
  • How do you make Brown?

This simple process of trial and error is a fabulous learning exercise, with an emphasis on problem-solving skills and mathematical thinking (mixing and mentally measuring colours to achieve the desired tone).

And of course, it’s wonderful for creativity!

Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft: Tutorial 

Arty Crafty Kids | Seasonal | Autumn Crafts for Kids | Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft | A fun and simple Autumn Tree Craft for Kids, with a free tree template included for download!

Step 1. Print the free Tree Template (complete the sign-up form to be referred) onto a piece of white card stock. I prefer to use card stock for kids art projects for one simple reason – it’s durable and doesn’t turn into a soggy mess when the kids (inevitably) use an excess of paint!

Arty Crafty Kids | Seasonal | Autumn Crafts for Kids | Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft | A fun and simple Autumn Tree Craft for Kids, with a free tree template included for download!

Step 2. Mix the Autumn colours using the primary colours. This is a great way for children to explore colour shades beyond the secondary colours.

Apply the paint directly to the bubbles – this will create clear and crisp circular prints!

For your reference, refer to our basic colour-mixing chart:

https://www.artycraftykids.com/product/arty-crafty-kids-club/

Once your Arty Crafty Kids have successfully created Orange, how many shades of orange, red and yellow can they make?

Step 3. Turn the bubble wrap over and press down firmly.

Arty Crafty Kids | Seasonal | Autumn Crafts for Kids | Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft | A fun and simple Autumn Tree Craft for Kids, with a free tree template included for download!

Step 4. Gently peel the bubble wrap away from the paper to reveal the prints. Each piece of bubble wrap can be reused 2 or 3 times before the need for additional paint.

Arty Crafty Kids | Seasonal | Autumn Crafts for Kids | Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft | A fun and simple Autumn Tree Craft for Kids, with a free tree template included for download!

Step 5. Continue the process using a variety of colours and layers.

For ease, we gave each colour its own piece of bubble wrap.

Your Bubble Wrap Autumn Tree Craft is now complete!
