Junior Art Club Project
This was a fun project to do for Art Club. We looked at an image I got from Pinterest and the children got very excited about what they were going to make.
I gave each pupil 3 lolly sticks, one wooden peg and a button.
They used acrylic paint to paint the lolly sticks and pegs, although I did have coloured sticks which are just as good. They used a hairdryer to dry the sticks and then felt pens to add design and detail. This was enough for just one club, the children put their sticks and peg on top of a sheet of A4 paper with their name on it.
The second club was finishing off the planes, cutting one lolly stick in half and using PVA to stick them together. I used a glue gun to stick some of the aeroplanes together. The children finished their aeroplanes off with a cutout propeller and a button.
If you fancy doing this for a club my top tips are:
If you have a large group and they are quite young then give them coloured lolly sticks rather than paint then with acrylics.
If you can get help and have a glue gun it is a lot quicker and less messy, while the children add detail in felt pens on the lolly sticks you could get pupils to bring the sticks up for glueing throughout the lesson.
This could be done in one Art club session if you don’t use paint.
Good luck and tweet your pictures.
