First the GIVEAWAY
I have been hard at work putting together the perfect giveaway, and I am so excited to share it with you. The theme of this giveaway will remain a secret, at least for a few more days, but I will tell you that the winners package will contain everything they will need to complete an entire week of lessons.
The giveaway starts now, February 1 and will run until February 7. I will put each entry into a hat and randomly draw a name. The winner will be announced on February 8 and will have 1 week to get me their contact info. Are you curious how to enter?
1. Read back through my blog and try out some of my activities. Come back here and tell me how it went, be specific so I know how many entries you’ve earned. (If you take pictures of the process or end product you can email it to me at email@example.com, that will NOT increase your chances of winning.) Each activity review will earn you 1 entry, so get busy!
2. Link the giveaway or one of amomwithalessonplan.com activities through facebook or twitter and come back here to tell me about it for 1 entry.
Looking for an activity to get you started? Contact paper window hearts is fun, easy and makes a great window decoration.
and now the activity
It’s no secret that I love contact paper, oh boy do I love contact paper!!! So I’m sure it’s no surprise that this simple, mess free art project revolves around CONTACT PAPER!
what you need: clear contact paper ~ scraps ~ a window
As you can see; I measured a perfect heart, traced it and then very carefully cut on the line. Or maybe not. Draw a heart. Cut it out. Keep it as simple as possible!
I literally dug through the art cabinet looking for scraps of pink and white. I found crate paper, tissue paper, cotton fabric and even some tulle. Use anything you can find. The only rule is that it must lay flat.
I found sequins, and although I thought about glitter I didn’t grab it. (Trying for mess free remember?)
Little M worked diligently for about half an hour. It takes patience and fine motor skills to complete this project. As well as the ability to STOP. If you put too much the contact paper won’t stick anymore. . . and as you’ll see we needed it to stick.
You can display these in a couple of different ways. They work great just like they are. Press the contact paper onto a window and your done! The other option is to seal it with another piece of contact paper and then tape it to the window, or wall.
You’re already on your way to the art cabinet right? Don’t forget to come back here and tell me how it went!
