EASY CREPE PAPER CANVAS ART WITH KIDS

It’s been a cold & rainy couple of weeks here in Sydney recently! The rain stopped long enough this week for Mr4 to get out on the balcony for some quick & easy Canvas Art making whilst the littlest napped! Not the most ideal activity on a high-rise building balcony as it’s very windy but the view is great and chasing roll-away/fly away crepe paper proved to be fun!  

This is an easy project for both toddlers & preschoolers! It’s not too messy, surprising quick drying, leaving beautiful bright colors & a bumpy texture! 

 

To make your own textured Canvas Art, you will need: 

  • Water
  • PVA Glue
  • Canvas (any size you want)
  • Crepe Paper 
  • Paint roller 


 

Instructions: 

  • Mix 1 part water to 2 parts PVA glue & mix until well combined. 
  • Cover your canvas in the watered down glue mix. 
  • Lay across ripped lengths of crepe paper, gluing over the top as you go. 





Once you’re finished pasting, lay your canvas in the sun & allow to dry. For us, this took just a few hours and was ready to hang that afternoon!


You could hang as is, or turn it into a homemade pegboard or pin board to display all your important notes & art! 

To create a pegboard from your canvas art, hang some twine across & use mini pegs to display birthday cards, samples of artworks & drawings, shopping lists, post cards & more!

To create a pin board, insert & secure a sheet of polystyrene to the back of the canvas, using pushpins to display photos, school notes, quotes & more!

We don’t do art on a canvas often, so I think that made this activity even more special. A Peg or Pin Board would make a lovely personalized gift too!
