Ocean-themed arts and craft activites for children

stencil-painted chairA little traditional rush seat chair is given a new, ''seaside'' look! Firstly, it's given two coats of blue acrylic paint. Once the paint has dried, the chair's uprights and arm posts will be decorated using a stencil and white acrylic paint. The stencil is stuck on beforehand (using a temporary adhesive spray, this makes for an easier and better job). We then apply the paint using a stencil brush, loading the brush with just a little paint and dabbing it onto a cloth before applying. Be careful, if there's too much paint, or if the paintbrush is too wet, the motif will run. This stencil-based activity is suitable for young children from the age of 4-5 years old; but beware! you may have trouble getting them to put their brushes down..!chair painted using a stencil
stencil design picture frame for kidsHere we're decorating a picture frame in unfinished wood in 3 steps, using stencil-painted designs:
  • on the outside edges
  • on a sheet of blue cardstock that will be slid under the glass
  • on the glass of the frame itself, thus creating a 3D effect.

Here we've painted picture frames in a blue that's going on navy blue. On one of them, sky blue swirls are painted freehand and a card is slid under the glass. Upon the other, the picture frame glass is taken out and replaced with a sheet of white cardstock to which are glued painted seashells and a pretty souvenir pebble.small picture frames with ocean-themed designs
