3 Acetate crafts to do at home this winter!

Creation Station | Crafts | Arts and Craft Activities for Kids | Free Stuff | Activity Sheets | Activities for Kids | Seasonal Activities for Kids | Indoor Activities For Kids | Arts and Crafts Activities For Kids | Half Term Activities For Kids

Colour patterns, leafy trees, and swirly pictures. Acetate is so versatile you can make anything you can imagine - and here's three we'd recommend trying at home! Check out this week's #MakeitMonday and get involved with the fun today.  


 

You will need; 

4 Sheets of Acetate 

Mixed colour paints 

4 Sheets of white card

1 Black marker

A rainy afternoon and some creative flair! 

You can watch the video above for a good step-by-step guide or you can start by making your painted patterns on a sheet of acetate- then once you're ready to capture your masterpiece - lay a sheet of white card over the top and press down firmly. 
Finally, flip the two sheets and remove the acetate sheet to reveal your piece - allow time to dry and ta da! You're done! 

We'd love to see your acetate masterpieces - so do share them on Facebook with #CreationStation or tag The Creation Station Ltd!

We love Creation Station

We have been going to Creation Station since my daughter was 6 weeks old. She's now almost 3. Kirsty is just great! She is patient with new Mummies and their babies teaching printing skills and helping produce special memories. As a toddler my daughter is encouraged to be as creative as she wants with plentiful materials available. We both love Creation Station and Kirsty!
