Kids Frugal Fun-Newspaper Art


Each week I bring you a kids craft that is fun, educational, and frugal. Earth Day has passed but Arbor Day is April 27th!! This craft is all about recycling and creating a beautiful piece of art featuring your child’s precious handprint at the same time!  If you’ve missed any previous crafts, check out Momondealz’s Kids Frugal Fun page.

Newspaper Art

Cereal Box
Mod Podge

1.  Grab those leftover newspapers and allow your child to rip or cut it into pieces.

2.  Cover the empty cereal box in Mod Podge.

3.  Lay the pieces of torn newspaper to completely cover the Mod Podge.  Allow to dry.

4.  Paint your child’s hand with paint and have them put their handprints on the box to create tree top.

4.  Paint a bottom to your tree and allow your child to fingerpaint leaves.

Since the cereal box acts as like a thick canvas print, we are using ours to cover up the thermastat!
