I liked this idea from Teach Preschool using gift bows to make textured holiday bow prints paintings. We just folded the tab on the back of the bow back and painted with it like that. We made our paintings look like presents with bows on top. What a fun yet very simple holiday activity/craft! Make Christmas Holiday Bow Prints Art with a few simples supplies.
Holiday Bow Prints Art
To make this project you just need a few supplies:
- gift bows, for painting and to finish page
- craft sticks (to attach to bows to make a “brush” (optional)
- construction paper
Simply provide paint and bows to paint with on the paper in front of the child. They will make lovely prints and color mixtures.
Some will experiment with different ways to move the bow so you may end up with swirls and smears which is all apart of the learning process.
