Decoupage is a simple yet artful craft technique, easily managed by young children. Making decoupage a good party craft activity. And Modge Podge has made decoupage easier than ever: now there’s a kid friendly washable Modge Podge too. Check your local craft store. (Modge Podge is a glue, sealer and finish all rolled into one jar).
Kudos to Valerie over at innerchildfun.com for putting this new product to good use with these tissue paper leaf coasters, using inexpensive white ceramic tiles from the home store for the coaster. Pick up some felt buttons for the back while your at the home store, and your all set to go.
But why stop here? There’s thousands of things that could be decoupaged onto those plain white tiles- all depending on your party theme. Print out pictures of super-heroes, sized to fit and cut out if the kids are too young to manage that. Use real leaves collected on a nature walk through the park. Print out animals, star wars characters, the possibilities here are endless.
And the kids end up with a party momento that they can actually use!
