DIY Black and white bugs from nature materials - fall maple seeds as part of crafts for kids

This year we decided to re-use Halloween as a theme for arts and crafts for kids. The more that recently theme of bugs and worms became very popular.

They were already creatures of acorns and chestnuts, were the insects with autumn leaves and pods, and today - flies from maple seeds. By keeping the Halloween spirit - black and white.

Nature materials: Sycamore Maple
Maple seeds can be used in many ways in the work of art. These harvested in early October are already bronzed and hard to hold. It is better to collect them earlier.

For painting natural materials, ie. the maple seed, acrylic paint are the best. Poster paint and tempera do not hold too much, and even the color effect is not too shocking. Fortunately, small amounts of acrylic paints you can buy at a similar price to poster paints.

We start from the application of the background on maple seeds. Most white and some black. Children easily give cope with this task. When the primer is dry, we start to do the painting designs. Already experienced artists suggest thin brush and acrylic paint. Younger kids make too much trouble. Much better left to permanent markers, even Sharpie. While for white drawings - the equalizer.
