Christy from Christy's Cuties is one of my first bloggie friends.  she's also one of my co-hosts for the tip-toe thru tuesday party. she was awesome enough to share an easy art activity that she did with her kiddos.  you can see more of her child-related fun in the DIY Marble Maze Game tutorial, and Tooth Monster Pillow.
Hi!  I am so happy to be over here at Crayon Freckles today.  Andie is a great inspiration to me on how to become a better mom to my small ones.  Her ideas are incredible.  My name is Christy and I blog over on
I am a mom to three cuties, wife, college student, blogger, and most importantly a child of God.  At Christy's Cuties I cover DIY, sewing, crafting, thrifting, working out, food, and everything in between.  Today I would like to show you a craft I did with my little ones. 
Here is what I used:
tissue paper
construction paper
pen or marker

I started by asking my two participants which animal they would like for me to draw.  {no judging on my mad drawing skills, k? } The top is Miss Riley's, and it's supposed to be a pig.  The bottom is Kaleb's, and it was meant to be a tiger.

Next, I told them to pick whatever colors they wanted for their animals and go to town.  They loved tearing up the tissue paper and scrunching it up.  What kid doesn't love destroying things?  HA.

For every dot of glue, they used a piece of tissue paper over it.

I loved seeing how they ripped it, the sizes they used, the colors they used.  I think it is great to spark creativity in your children.

Here is Riley's pig.  Pink and yellow.  And perfect.

Kaleb's is by far my most creative child.  He loves to help me do things.  And asks for crafts to do for himself almost daily.
This is a really simple, cheap, and long lasting craft.  They seemed to enjoy it.  And Riley continued with a momma horse and baby horse next.  :)
Thanks so much to Andie for having me.  I had a good time crafting with my kiddos.  I hope you all have a great day.
I'm social!  You can keep in touch with me on FacebookPinterest, or at Christy's Cuties.
