Youth to adult activity For this project you will need: empty toilet paper rolls hot glue gun or white glue, like Elmers scissors a pencil and ruler craft paint, food coloring, markers or crayons paint brush a backing - card stock, card board, piece of wood, empty frame
Flatten the roll and smooth the sides with a pencil or ruler. Mark on the fold at 1/4” spaces, along the length of the roll. Cut across the roll at the marks to make thin individual pieces from several rolls. Paint, color, or dye the pieces with one or more colors. If painting, hold the piece at one of the folds, paint the rest of the piece. Paint other pieces while the first one dries. Go back and paint the places you were holding.
Arrange 4, 5, or 6 of the shapes so one end point is touching the others. Use a dab of glue or glue gun to connect the points to each other. You have the basic flower. Arrange the flowers in a circle, square, heart shape, star, name, or any other design. Add smaller paper shapes between the TP ones to expand the pattern. Enhance with beads, buttons, shells, stones, craft items or whatever your imagination desires.

Shared by Dana Weir 1. You will need a piece of white paper, such as copier paper, and a pencil to begin. Lay one hand flat on the paper and trace around it with your other hand. 2. When you are happy with your hand shape drawing, outline it with a ballpoint pen or a sharpie. Use black or dark blue ink for this. 3. What symbols or patterns do you want on your paper hand? Draw many designs on the paper, filling up the space within the hand. 4. Option: make several by yourself or with family or friends. Cut them out and make a collage or a clothesline display.
Youth and Adult activity Go outside or look through the window. Look at something, an animal, a tree, a flower braving the cold, for a couple of minutes. Draw what you observed and write, tell or think of a brief story about the item you drew. The story can be fictional or true. Share it with those in your home, by phone or online with family and friends.
