wool art

There are many methods to do this craft, we have decided to focus on Spectrum and Radiating Designs. Use as many colours as you like and a darker craft paint to get an even better contrast against your crayons and colourful wool.

Only do this craft for term classes as it will go over 2 weeks as you will need to wait for the paint to dry (if its not a really hot day and you can put it out in the sun :)). Children can make 2 crafts if they finish early (if you do it over 2 weeks). Do not go over to painting until the entire board is covered with crayons.

You can also use a thick brush if you dont have rollers.

  1. +- 30x 30cm Cardboard square or circle cake cardboard
