Mad Mosaics

You might as well go ahead and Pin It to your bulletin boards right now, because I can tell you that as soon as you read the how-to and see the final result, you are not only going to engage in this activity with the child closest to you, but you may even want to try having a go at it by yourself.

Now that the commercial element of this post is out of the way, I will share with you an outside-the-kit type of craft that I used my brain to invent.

 

SUPPLIES

You will need:

– Paper of various colors
– Glue that works
– Scissors that have not been previously glued together

 

FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS BECAUSE IF YOU DON’T, YOUR PROJECT WILL BE ALL SCREWED UP, BUT THAT’S OKAY BECAUSE IT WILL BE SCREWED UP ANYWAY, SO IF IT IS INDEED SCREWED UP, THEN YOU KNOW YOU’VE DONE IT RIGHT

1. Cut paper into strips.
2. Cut strips into squares or rectangles.
3. Assemble cut shapes on a sheet of paper to create a design.
4. Glue design onto paper.
5. Accidentally glue paper to table.

Voila! You have a new tablecloth for your kitchen! In five EASY steps!

Erma calls it: "Bricks Here and Here and Here"

Mine is called: "Doorway to a Cave Without an Exit." It's an exit-stencil piece. HA HA HA.

  1. My best tablecloths are usually orange and white fur, generally soft and warm and well cushioned. Wait. Those are the cats!

  2. I love it that your supply list requires “scissors that have not been previously glued together” – spoken like a true mother 🙂
