Cardboard Art

Livvy and I are loving the idea of finding different things to create wonderful art with..so far we have made art-attack pictures with marbles, drinking straws and the latest one with with different sized bits of cardboard!!

What You Need

Cardboard – cut into different widths
Various colors of paint
White thick paper (we used a large piece)

How Livvy Did It

So simple, Livvy dunked one end of the cardboard into the paint and used it as a “brush” …she wanted to make a palm tree and long grass so for the base of the palm tree she twisted the paint laden cardboard when applying it to the paper and for the long grass she just dabbed the paint on.  She also used lighter colors to make shading!
