Pistachio Nuts Shell Art !!

My 3 year daughter loves glue. She is game for any activity that includes glue. So I find new things for her to stick and enjoy! She has been loving these pista nut shell art so much, that she has made one almost 3 days in a row.
 Just gave her glue, black construction paper and empty pista nut shells. She made a couple of alphabets in the beginning..

Later on made some random patterns...

See how much she loves glue...

Finished collage..
One more..

Another... I did not have black construction paper, so gave cereal box card and she made flowers this time..
She wanted to paint her flowers..

Then when she tried to paint stalk, she accidentally joined one flower to another which she loved and started joining them all...

Love how this turned out!! The card buckled up, wish she did not pour so much glue... but then she did have loads of fun making these..

Proud and happy girl !!

Please give us thumbs up!

Love this! I like the idea of colouring them after sticking them in patterns...
Awesome work, Putti :)

Look at that big smile on her face - well deserved! Love both the "abstract and the flowers"! Brilliant!

Oh,the smile tells everthing! Lovelly!

Love the pistachio flowers, especially painted!

Thanks for linking to Creative Juice. Hope to see you back again this week...

Thanks again for playing at my link party. I love that she painted the flower ones. You have one creative little girl! Come play again tomorrow!

Thanks everyone! She now has gone and painted all the others too :)

This is very smart. Using trash to make art is a great idea and excellent for sensory work! :)

This is featured in this week's High paw but you already know this ;)

THis is wonderful! My girls love glue too! Sometimes too much but I like that they enjoy themselves, even if we end up with a glue mess.

I would love for you to link up on my new Kids Craft & Educational type linky party - The Sunday Showcase which just started today!

Here is the direct link to link-up:

The more wonderful ideas we share - the more inspiration we all have! :) I hope you can come link-up and "showcase" your amazing work!

This is lovely work. Nice to find a kindred spirit in blog land. I love to encourage art and craft in my little girl too. She is nearly 5.

I found so many interesting stuff in your blog especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles,I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here! Keep up the good work.

Perhaps she can use a variety of nutshells or pieces of, for pics. I'm going to try that.
