Translucent Hearts

It’s been a crazy few days around here and we just haven’t been around to do anything. Now we’re snowed in AGAIN and so here we are. IMG_3297
This little craft was fairly easy and yet kept his little fingers busy for a few minutes.
wax paper
vegetable oil
cotton balls
red tissue paper
What We Did:
1. I cut a heart out of wax paper
2. I had them tear the red tissue paper into little pieces.

3. I put the vegetable oil in a shallow bowl and had them dip the cotton balls into it and rub oil onto the wax paper heart.

*tip-be generous with the oil as it takes a lot of oil in order for the tissue paper to stick.
4. Press tissue paper pieces onto heart.
I assume it will somehow dry and we’ll put it up somewhere to admire :-)
