Five Little Potties - Wax and Tissue Paper Craft

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!
