We tried something fun around here yesterday. Sandpaper Art. My kids really love coloring and I thought it would put a fun spin on their artwork. It was a great opportunity to talk about textures and things that are hot since this craft uses an iron to transfer the image over to the blank piece of paper.
- Paper (or a shirt would be fun too!)
- Color the entire piece of sandpaper. Make sure to press hard. The more coverage, the better.
- When complete, place your artwork face-up and the blank piece of paper on top.
- Iron for a couple minutes and Voila!
The texture of the end result was a lot of fun. It also made the sandpaper piece a little different too. It was a fun experiment and one I’m sure we’ll try again!
P.S. Yes, I have pregnancy brain, but I still know Caden’s name…. he’s wearing a name tag because they had a substitute in preschool yesterday.
