  • Here are a couple of quick and easy art activities inspired by Winter. SNOWFLAKE DECORATIONS You will need: PaperScissors Method: Start with a square. Fold in half to make a triangle, then fold the points upwards (check picture for reference) Then draw the snowflake design and cut out! Make a few in different sizes and decorate a wall or door! SNOWMAN SURPRISE You will need: Clear contactScissorsColoured card (or an old cereal packet you can cut up and colour)Either old lace doily from an op shop, cotton balls or white paper Method: This one is really simple but kept my three year old entertained for quite some time and she was thrilled with the result. Simply draw the snowman shape on the contact. Cut out and peel off backing. Stick to door or wall by folding over a couple of centimeters at the top and bottom. Let your child decide what accessories the snowman will have. If they can draw and cut them out by themselves, give them ownership of their artwork. My three year old drew the circle buttons, the lines on the carrot and the shape of his smile and I cut them out for her.

I remember I used to go out of my way to step on a crunchy leaf, and for some reason it still brings out the child in me! These activities have been created with young children and preschoolers in mind, but they’re equally as satisfying for older age groups too (ahem, even really big kids at heart!). They’re easy and quick to put together and especially great for keeping those toddlers busy while you get something else done, or better yet, sit down and have a cuppa, or read that magazine you bought three weeks ago that’s still sitting on the kitchen counter! Contact Art You will need: Clear contactBlack card or brown paper, cut into a trunk and then some branch shapes. Homemade leaves (you could pre paint/fingerpaint some autumn colours with your child and cut it into leaf shapes)Or craft leaves from a variety shopSticky tape To begin… Cut some contact off the roll and round off the top. Then pull off the paper backing. Stick this (with…

HANDY ANZAC WREATHS! You will need: Up to 20 paper platesSome green card or paper (or collect real leaves or greenery that can be glued)Glue stick or glue and brush + scissorsRed and black paint + paint brushes Method: Cut the centre out of one paper plate - this will make a donut shaped template to stick your poppy hands and leaves onto. Generously paint your hand red and print it into the middle of a paper plate. Repeat for as many 'poppies' as you'd like (we made about 14). Pop black dots in the middle of the palm print, representing poppies. Allow them to dry and then cut out the hand prints. Draw and cut some green card…
