Kiwi fruit is definitely F’s favourite fruit right now – he’s been known to eat three in a row then ask for more! We celebrated this cute fruit by making this art collage!
- Tissue paper pieces
- Brown embroidery thread cut into small pieces
- Black rice
I made the black rice by putting some white rice into a resealable bag with some black acrylic paint, and smooshing it all around. I could have got F to help me with this, but actually I found it rather satisfying!
If your children are at the scissor-cutting stage then they can help you cut up the tissue paper and thread, but as F isn’t there yet I prepared it all in advance. We spread the glue inside a large circle I had drawn onto cardstock, and started sticking the green tissue paper pieces on.
I added a white piece of tissue paper for the centre of the kiwi fruit, then added glue all around the outside of the circle. F was insisting that he should have the glue bottle by this point, so I had to give him a decoy glue bottle that was nearly empty! We stuck the thread to this so that it looked like the furry kiwi fruit skin.
