DIY S Q U I S H I E S. 🍩🍿🦄
These toys are such a huge hit right now so we opened up our art studio to a fun group of 13 kids for them to create their own.
Step 1: Cut the foam into desired size. I cut them into 3"x 3" so that everyone started out the same size square.
Step 2: Draw on your foam square the shape of what you're going to create.
Step 3: Start cutting. I used sharp sewing scissors but I set out a set of elementary safety scissors for the kids to use.
It definitely wasn't super easy for them to cut but I showed them out to snip off little pieces as a time to get the desired shape.
Step 4: Shave off hair chalk to create a powder using scissors. I reused old plastic containers to catch the powder in. Then using old makeup brushes or even kids foam paint brushes, brush on the powder.
Step 5: The kids can decorate the foam pieces in so many different ways. We used thick and thin sharpie markers, fabric markers, chalk powder, and puffy paint.
Step 6: Let dry and they're ready for play.
