Using these Easter and Spring themed push pin poke art pictures will provide your children of ALL AGES hours of pokey time fun!
Sometimes called pin prick pictures, these were historically used in the 17th and 18th centuries as a way for girls to pass the time. The designs were created on watercolor paper, and embellished with watercolor paint for effect.
Happy Hive Homeschooling poke art patterns come in BOTH black and white and color for stunning effects.
HERE IS WHAT YOU GET IN PUSH PIN POKE ART- EASTER / SPRING PICTURES:
10 – Color and Black & White patterns
Directions for use include using the patterns with paint or sewing with the patterns. Sewing with the patterns is a fantastic activity for your older children.
There is a link to a short instructional video for the backstitch and a french knot. The Pattern must be poked before it is sewn, so this takes some time to complete.
Just like throughout history, you can use the patterns to create artwork by poking them then coloring them yourself with crayons, colored pencils, or watercolors. The sky is the limit and this art activity is not limited to the smallest child.
Suggested poking tools include:
You can print and poke directly on cardstock, or you can double up and poke through two layers. However you decide to complete the project, it is best to have a soft surface behind your paper.
Suggested soft surfaces include:
These take quite a bit of time and effort on your child’s part, so be sure to hang them in a window so you can get the full effect. Painted and sewn pictures can be framed and given as gifts or used as decorations for years to come.
