For this craft we’ll put together pictures of serene landscapes with torn paper. This project is totally kid-friendly because we won’t be using scissors (not until the very end) and just about every kid I know can tear paper like a professional. Let’s get started!
Supplies you’ll need:
- Construction paper
- Glue stick
- Pens or crayons
- Scissors (optional)
- Dip paintbrush in water and draw lines onto the construction paper. Then tear along the water line. Get creative and make other shapes using this method.
- Use pens or crayons to create detail.
- Next, you’ll need a whole piece of paper for your canvas. Glue your shapes onto your canvas. Allow to dry.
- If the torn paper overlaps the canvas. Fold over and glue or tear off. For a cleaner look, trim off with scissors.
This is a great way to use up scrap paper. And whatever shapes you don’t end up using, can be saved for the next time you’re inspired to create some lush landscapes.
