Tracing and Painting


I thought the girls and I could give some tracing a go after being inspired by a blog post I read here at The Artful Parent and after enjoying our body tracing activity so much but instead of making this a one off project, we worked on it over two days. It was great to turn it into something more than just tracing, even though the tracing part was super fun.

Yesterday afternoon we traced around interesting objects we found around the home. This was great fun, finding and tracing. There was an endless amount of objects that we could use. Some we found were scissors, a balloon pump, the k-beater from the Kenwood mixer, a whisk, tongs, a mixing spoon, a spatula, a rubber toy dinosaur, a stool and a wooden toy knife.

We finished our project this morning by using colourful acrylic paints to fill the pictures in. Now to hang our bright artwork up!
