Clear plastic bottle (we used Aquapods by Poland Spring)
Sequins, buttons, ribbon, yarn, and other shakable objects
To start, insert a handful of objects into a clear plastic bottle. In one bottle, we put sequins, buttons, and baubles of varying sizes, and in the others, we put ribbon and yarn cut into half-inch, 2-inch, and 5-inch lengths.
Fill the bottle with water, leaving about an inch of space at the top. Firmly secure the lid with hot glue and let it dry completely (about 5 minutes) before giving it to your child.
Brown and red tempera paint
Torn-up leaves and blades of grass
To make one, have your child paint his palm and wrist with brown tempera, then press them on a piece of paper to make a print. (Tip: For easier cleanup, add one tablespoon of dish soap for each L cup of paint.) While the tree is drying, he can add red fingerprint apples.
Have him squeeze white glue over the branches and under the tree, then sprinkle on torn-up leaves and blades of grass gathered from a woodsy walk or backyard ramble. Allow the collage to dry completely before hanging.
Add color to the grays of a winter landscape with an ephemeral sun catcher made of ice.
Ice cube tray
Round cake pan
First, create colorful ice cubes by adding one to three drops of food coloring to the water in each section of the tray. Use only a few matching colors, as they will run together in the pan later. Freeze the cubes completely.
Fill a round cake pan about two-thirds full of water. To make the hole for the ribbon, set a plastic cup full of water in the pan. Place the pan in the freezer for an hour or so. Put the colored ice cubes in the pan, then let all the liquid freeze solid. Remove the plastic cup, flip the sun catcher out of the pan, then hang it outside with ribbon.
Paper and pencil
Dimensional fabric paint (we used Scribbles brand in Glittering Crystal)
Draw a snowflake template (small, compact designs work best) Lay the template faceup on the cookie sheet and cover it with the waxed paper.
Using a thin line of the fabric paint (approximately 1/8-inch wide), trace the snowflake design on the waxed paper as shown, making sure all of the paint lines connect. Let the window cling dry overnight, then carefully peel it from the waxed paper.
