Collage and Sand Arts

I guess most children like doing collage; cutting papers into pieces and glued over a picture.

I’ve introduced this simple but enjoyable craft work to Sarah over the weekend; we used basic materials such as scissor, glue, some wrapping paper and colour note pad.

During the process, I noticed Sarah more enjoy in cutting and pasting the paper than using glue…she told me it is “sticky”. At the end we have so much fun and this is the outcome of our combined effort.

Sand Arts
Another favourite activities we both enjoyed doing is Sand Arts. We never missed the chance to have fun whenever we are at the neighborhood bookstores, although Sarah already has her own set at home.

And we have found an idea place at home to display our “collection”.

Hi, thanks for dropping by. How are you and your baby?
- Yes, it is indeed a fun art activity. You may try it with Kyle. Maybe he will love it.
- Sand art also another way of boosting up kids creativity in art.
Is ok that Kyle loves black. Sooner he will discover that other colours in his world:-)

Mummy Gwen said...

Good job Mummy and Sarah. The collage pieces are very nice. Gwen also loves sand art but I hate the messiness. Good idea to put up the sand art pieces as display. :)

Merryn said...

Aiyo! U have patience to do sand art with Sarah! I kenot! I dislike the mess that sand art comes with... so Ethan only get to do sand art when we are out in the mall or something.. never at home! Haha.. :D

ChloeRuoyi said...

What a big and nice collection of sand art! I have only done that once with Chloe. The collage is nice too :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

We have really done a lot of sand arts together. I love it too:-)
- Does Chloe likes doing art work?
For Sarah, she likes will only do the art for a short period of time and later I have to help her to finish it.
- Thanks for your comment about the collage.

Actually I am not a patient person, is true you know. But I know by doing art work with Sarah she could occupied some of her time rather than lepaking at home:-)
- I prefer do sand art at car porch. Less messy!

The bonding btw both of us are great whenever we are doing art work together. I appreciate it so much.
- We indeed done a lot of sand arts together. But it does needs patience from me too.

Mommy Gwen:
Thanks for your lovely comment.

- I am sure Gwen also done alot of sand arts. I remember she loves art work right?
- Actually I steel the idea from my neighbour. I saw her display her girl's sand arts near the staircase, so I do the similar thing by display at fridge:-)
