Don’t throw away those paper, fabric, or yarn scraps, throw them into a tub and let kids create artwork masterpieces with them.
UPDATE: This craft project was initially created for a website by the name of Kidzui, however that website no longer exists.
Although I tend to be a crafter who plans ahead and rarely crafts with the kids just for the sake of it, there are all of those scraps that I hoard which need to be used up every so often before they take over my craft room. Plus, sometimes it's nice for the kids to just be able to dive head first into a pile of scraps and create their own masterpiece without me taking over.
Scrap art is the perfect way for kids to unleash their creativity while having fun and using up some of those scrap supplies.
To see Miss M's latest scrap art project and get some tips for using up your scraps read my latest post at Kidzui.
So, whenever you are cutting off the ends of yarn or paper, just pop them into a big tub and let the kids use those to create their own works of art.
