Creative Chalk Art
By: Brandie Valenzuela
I just love creative art ideas for
children! I am always on the lookout for fun ideas, and just ask my
kids, we are always experimenting to find new ways to use everyday items!
Here is an inexpensive art project that offers sensational results!
Large Flat Paintbrush
Using newspaper, cover your workspace.
In a small plastic container, mix equal amounts of starch and water. Give
child a piece of construction paper and a paint brush. Have child
dip the paintbrush into the starch and brush it onto the construction
paper. Then using the chalk, the child can draw a design onto the
wet construction paper. Remember, let your child create whatever
their heart desires! When the project dries, the starch acts as a
fixative and won't rub off.
This method creates beautiful art -- which
definitely deserves the best spot on the refrigerator door!
