Unplugged Project : Ribbon

This weeks theme is Ribbon.

The boys made faces by gluing pieces of the only ribbon I had on hand onto paper. They actually spent quite a bit of time on them and had a fun time. Very simple this week.

The face my 5 year old made. The hair is blowing in the wind he says.

This is what my 2 year old made. My idea was faces but he said "No" - so instead I present some sort of abstract art.

Unplugged Project : Newspaper

This weeks theme is newpaper.

We decided to make hats out of the paper. Here are the instructions if you are interested in making some as well.
My 5-year old made 2 - one for him and one for his stuffed dog and my 2-year old only wanted to make one for his dog.

And then I even pulled out the paints and let the kids paint them. They had a really great time. The downside was they could not wear them right away as they had to dry.
