:: chenille stems + beads/buttons + toothpicks + egg cartons + 15 minutes ::
This was a craft we did for St. Patrick’s Day, but it can be enjoyed whenever you feel like using some of your crafting supplies stash. I don’t know about you, but I’m always saving our egg cartons to upcycle or for paint trays. Who knew they made for an awesome sculpture base?
So as I read aloud about leprechauns, pots of gold, shamrocks, wishes and rainbows, the kids were busy creating their sculptures.
We used plenty of colorful chenille stems, beads, buttons, toothpicks and egg cartons. It was fifteen minutes of focused creativity and a fantastic way to start the day.
Linky love for the foam/wire sculpture inspiration from Jean’s Wire Sculpture post over at The Artful Parent.
