With the start of advent, our arts and crafts have turned festive. We have been making these snowy Christmas trees inspired by Meri Cherry.
Paper (watercolour paper available in Tiger), Watercolours (we used liquid but could use watercolour blocks), masking tape, sponge (or paint brushes), mini pompoms (or other decorations), glue, salt.
First I prepared the paper with masking tape stuck into a tree shape. The children then used a sponge to apply blue and white liquid watercolours over the whole piece of paper
The children then sprinkled salt over the paint (this makes a really cool effect on the paint!).
When the paint was dry, I peeled of the tape. The children then glued little pompoms onto their tree!
Happy making everyone! xxx
