Paint, crumple, and glue to create a springtime wreath for your home.
- Paper plate or empty cereal box
- Washable paint
- Tissue paper (cut into 3” squares)
- Glue bottle
- Scissors- adult
- Hole punch
- Egg carton or paint palette
To prepare the wreath, cut the center from a paper plate to make a ring- you can also use a cereal box instead. Fill the paint palette with a few spring colors (yellow, blue, pink). You can include white paint to explore color mixing and create a pastel palette. Paint the wreath and allow it to dry (you can quickly dry it using a hairdryer). Then crumple up the tissue paper squares and glue them around the wreath. Punch a hole in the top, loop a ribbon through, and find a door to hang it on!
