magical crepe paper

A super simple art projects for kids
(although we created some awesome backgrounds which I will be using in some of my art work, bonus).

All you need is some crepe paper and water.

step 1: Tear or cut pieces of the crepepaper, I found it easiest to cut and because K is into cutting this is what we did.

step 2:  there are different approaches, see for more here:
I glued the pieces down with some water and let them dry, after which the crepe paper just peels off:

But K took another approach, he is into making holes for the moment, so he made the pieces wet with a painbrush until there was a hole in them and then discarded the pieces. This gave a more subtle background:
