Decoupage is the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts onto an object. Melissa and Doug are now making this possible for children as young as six, with this ‘Decoupage Made Easy’ kit. This one has an owl-shaped cardboard character and pre-cut stickers in 8 different patterns (all in mauve and lilac shades). There are 176 stickers in total in this set, along with 2 eyes and a nose sticker. Simply peel off the stickers and place them on the owl. When the owl is completely covered in stickers, you paint over it using the foam craft brush and the decoupage glue. The result is a really lovely, patterned owl.
This is a great craft activity and one that your child will take pride in showing off after the project is complete.
