Printmaking with CDs offers a variety of options and is easy for preschoolers to adults.
If you follow us regularly, it is probably no surprise that we are a bit obsessed with printmaking. We love stamping and printing with everything and anything. Recyclables and common household items are our favorite materials to use. If you are like us, you most likely have a few old scratched up CDs or DVDs sitting around. Well don’t toss them out just yet, instead how about experimenting with some of these simple printmaking with CDs ideas.
These Q-tip daisies are an adorable craft and are great for fine motor skills.
Cotton swabs are not just for your ears. We use them in art projects often. They are great to paint with. They are fun to craft with as well. We used bare Q-tips to make these simple daisies for the spring, but you could also dip the Q-tips in paint and create other colorful flower creations.
Over the fall, my daughter and I had a blast making autumn trees. We painted and experimented with a few different methods, but our favorite was this lovely fall tree painted with bundled Q-tips.
This time last year, we made pasta skeletons for Halloween.
I just re-shared it on Instagram last week. One of my Instagram friends recommended that I make a Q-tip skeleton. This sounded like a great idea, so I took her up on her suggestion. We made our skeleton using Q-tips & old mismatched puzzle pieces.
Puzzle Piece & Q-tip Skeleton
What you will need:
Black & white paint
Glue gun (Use caution when using hot glue. Recommended for adult use only.)
Pick out the puzzle pieces that you would like to use for your craft. We used 7.
Paint the pieces black & let dry.
Paint a skull & neck with white paint & let dry.
Glue a Q-tip to the neck & then vertically across two more puzzle pieces like shown. Break a Q-tip in half & glue on either end of the first Q-tip for shoulders.
Glue on the arm & leg bones as shown. Draw a face on your skull. Glue a pipe cleaner to the back to hang.
