I participated in BabyFest 2019 at the Akron Art Museum.
Every year I come home inspired.
It is one of my favorite events of the year!
I was asked to bring a craft or activity to share with the little ones.
This year I provided a wax paper/tissue paper craft based on my Five Little Potties book.
|In the book, there is a lot of confetti! (There is a big potty party at the end!)|
I cut white, blue, orange, and red tissue paper into squares.
|You can do this craft at home too!|
To start, tear a piece of wax paper and fold it in half. The wax paper should be about double the size of a standard piece of paper, so when it is folded it is about the size a piece of paper.
|Next, add a little water to some white glue.|
|Then, use a brush to paint the glue on half the wax paper.|
|Place the tissue paper confetti all over the wax paper. |
Add as many pieces of tissue paper as you want!
|Paint glue on the other half of the wax paper.|
|Fold the halves together. This will seal the tissue paper between the wax paper.|
|Trace the potty on the wax paper. Click here for the template.|
|Almost done! Cut out your confetti potty.|
|Add eyes and a mouth and you have one of the Five Little Potties!|
