Art for kids. Various natural materials are perfect for making crafts; besides, they are easily available. Walking in the forest in summer or autumn you find twigs and tree roots of bizarre form. Ask your kids to collect them. Use your imagination and turn them into funny and useful things. Making PENCIL BOX from wooden sticks is a nice example of creative activity of yours.

Needed materials:

Driftwood, sticks, roots, thick threads, apothecary gum, acrylic paint, high tin, a nail file with a fine tooth, a knife, sandpaper.

How we do:

Choose twigs of the same thickness (about 5-7 mm) and cut off even pieces from them. The stick length should be equal to the tin height. Remove the sticks bark and treat the stiks and saw cuts with sandpaper.

Ask your kid to color sticks with varicoloured acrylic paints. Put two gums on the tin and underlaying the sticks under them spread the sticks around the tin. Tie the tin from above and below with thick threads. Take off the gums.
