Immy’s love affair with tape continues! Add the fact that this art project involved Immy using Mummy’s tape dispenser and we were in heaven over here 🙂 Using a plain white canvas, Immy pulled off lengths of tape (great for developing motor skills) and stuck them to the canvas. We used regular sticky tape but masking tape or electrical tape would probably work even better on canvas (I would only use masking tape if using paper as your base).
She then painted over the tape with child friendly acrylic paint. She actually quite liked painting the sections or divisions that the tape had created.
We left our canvas to dry before peeling away the tape for the big reveal. And I must say, I quite like the result.
This type of creative relief work can be as simple or as detailed as you like which makes it a perfect project when working with a group of children of different ages, with older children capable of creating really interesting and detailed artwork with tape or Contact paper.
