With all of the snow we’ve been getting, it has been driving everyone a little stir crazy. Mommy has been racking her brain for fun activities to do with the munchkin while we are snowbound. Mai flipped over one of her bowls the other day & told me that it was a turtle shell. She inspired this evenings crafts with her clever observation. We are always painting & crafting with paper plates, but what about paper bowls for a little more dimension?

What you will need:

Paper bowls

Construction paper or foam boards (we used foam)

Glue

Scissors

Paint & brushes

Pen or marker

Directions for the turtle:

Lay your bowl on top of your paper/foam board draw out your head,eyes & your arms to a desired size.

Mai painted her own too.

038

Let your little artist add glue to the turtle pieces

Glue your pieces together & watch your little one cheer with excitement at her masterpiece. Let dry well before moving. Use pressure if needed to hold pieces in place while drying.

  1. This reminds me of my kindergarten/first grade teaching days! Of course that was 15 years ago and now art has become a preschool/home thing. My poor second grader does little to no art in school anymore it’s all paper/pencil. Great at home activity for her though, thanks for the ideas, so cute!

  2. Those look really neat. I’m pinning them and will try to remember to grap paper bowls sometime soon. We’re starting to get cabin fever here too, being cooped up as much as we are.
