DIY: colored tape art
We used the Kid Made Modern tape we got from Target, but I am sure you can use washi tape and probably get some fun patterns in there too. I just handed True and Brave the tape and asked them to make a picture that tells a story. Happily, they got to ripping up the tape and made a mosaic of sorts with it.
True’s (the bottom one) is about the car on the road trip and everything she saw… mountains, rivers, building, cacti, and the sky. I think if you look closely, you can even see her name in it, which I don’t think I noticed until now. Brave (the top one) says hers is a big cactus. I love how all the bold, bright colors came out and I just got the frames from Michael’s craft store.
I really do think kid art is just so rad. They don’t really think and just do and there is just something so natural about it. We have some blank walls that need filling and I am loving filling it up with the girls’ goods. I am a bit biased, but I do think they are quite good. And oh my! You should totally see True when she is in the zone… she is quite a serious little artist and she takes her sweet ‘ole time.
