Paper and cardboard are my favorite mediums to play with. What are yours ?
Children love to start with a flat surface – a 2 dimensional surface does not overwhelm them.
Our quirky sculptures are made out of cereal box cardboard – so its quite thin.
For the wire sculptures, I have made simple cuttings of cardboard and placed the wire feet, sandwiched between twin cardboards. Also added a few yarn threads for hair and hands.
Little children may not be able to twist and turn the wire feet, so it can be replaced by cardboard strips. An additional heart shape is added on its side for flaps, as wings.
The cat sculptures are erected by the support of an additional strip (like in below pic)
Children love any sculpture that can stand by itself or make some form of movement.
This is an ideal craft for elementary class kids.
