Quilled Easter Cards
Celebrate spring with a colorful art form! Show your child how to shape and glue together thin, rolled strips of bright paper into fantastic designs. This quilling-inspired activity will incite him to create an extra special spring scene, a charming way to boost his hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. That's not all: his patience and ability to follow directions will also come a long way.
You don’t need quilling tools in order to show your child how to have fun twirling and curling paper into art. Your child can learn the basics by using objects around the house: toothpicks, pencils, knitting needles, skinny paintbrush handles—anything that your child can coil paper around. Note: The younger the child, the wider the paper and the larger the tool should be in circumference (to make the process easier).
What You Need:
- Strips of construction paper approximately ½” wide, in assorted colors
- Toothpick or other object to wind the paper around
- Craft glue
- Card stock
