This is one of our favorite superhero crafts! Start by painting your frame with white acrylic paint. Then choose which comics you’d like to use. We used comics from Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Green Lantern, Captain America, and The Flash. If you have a favorite superhero, you might decide to stick with one theme. You can use actual comic pages if you don’t mind cutting up one of your comic books. Another option is to search online for comic photos, and print them out on regular computer paper like we did. This way, you can scale them to size based on the frame you use. Continue reading →
One of the most popular craft activities right now is watercolor painting! S&S craft expert Crafty Kate specifically designed our new Watercolor Art Starters to appeal to a broad range of ages and abilities. The pack comes with 4 different timeless designs; feathers, seashells, ice cream, and flowers. Each design is printed lightly in a soft grey ink to look like a pencil sketch drawing. That way you don’t have to start with a “blank canvas”, but can have the flexibility and fun of personalizing it with different colors and styles! They are printed on 8″x8″ watercolor paper, and the finished craft can be framed easily.
