Tissue Art

This art exploration is as easy as it gets. I provided some liquid starch, paint brushes, white construction paper, scissors, and colored tissue paper. Lauren brushed some starch onto the white paper and pressed on pieces of tissue that she tore or cut.

Julia cut her tissue paper into shapes and used them to make a clown face. I love to give the girls art materials and see what they create on their own!


  1. I need to do some tissue art with my kids. Looks easy enough. I will try it on a rainy day. Thanks!

  2. This is one of Emily's favorite projects (she loves to glue things), and looks like your girls had a lot of fun too! Their pictures turned out so well!

  3. I love that you can very this to suit both young and older toddlers.

    Your post about writing numbers was so interesting. The wet, dry, try method is one we will certainly be using (when we start learning to write) and the purple-green method is also another idea we will be taking on board. Thank you for sharing these tips.

  4. I just discovered your blog and am enjoying your posts. I really love art experiences like this -- they are great for letting kids explore.
