HERE IS WHAT YOU GET IN PUSH PIN POKE ART- MAY THE 4TH/ STAR WARS DAY

10 – Color and Black & White patterns

  • Ewok My World
  • Wookie Face
  • I Don’t Need Rescuing (Princess)
  • Wise One
  • You’re A Trooper
  • That’s Not A Moon
  • Jedi Master – May the 4th Be With You
  • Rolling Droid
  • Flying Hunk Of Junk
  • Bounty Hunter Helmet

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:

  • Jumbo Push Pins
  • Embroidery needles secured to pencils to make a “tool”
  • toothpicks
  • golf tees (although these can make large holes)
  • clayworking tools
  • a long nail (also prone to larger holes)
  • straight pins secured to a pencil (make the smallest holes and can be STUNNING)

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:

  • Cork Board
  • Foam Mat
  • Cardboard (2 layers)
  • A folded towel
  • A large mouse pad

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.
