🐣 Tutorial di Pasqua 🐣 Il primo dei due tutorial pasquali che ho deciso di proporvi è quello super semplice dell’uovo che trovate anche nel mio libro #giochiamoagliorigami ☺️ Potete utilizzare la carta che preferite, l’importante è che non sia troppo spessa e che sia quadrata (15×15 cm o anche più piccola), io naturalmente mi sono servita di uno dei foglietti inclusi nel libro con questo bel pattern primaverile (disegnato da @aquarellista)! Gli ovetti di Pasqua origami si prestano a tante decorazioni, possono essere attaccati a dei sacchetti o a delle bustine, ma anche entrare a far parte di un bel disegno come inserto 3D. In alternativa potreste far scrivere ai vostri bambini una poesia o un pensiero sul retro del foglio che poi andrete a piegare o, ancora, fargli fare dei disegni su un foglio bianco che userete poi per realizzare l’uovo. Basta solo un po’ di creatività! ☺️ Mi raccomando, poi fatemi vedere come li avete utilizzati, aspetto con ansia le vostre foto! 😘 • • • #origami #origamate #storiedicarta #faidellordinariounapoesia #paperfolding #papercraft #esercizidibellezza #handmade #creativityfound #handmadeloves #handmadeisbetter #fattoamanoconamore #handmadewhitlove#fattoamano#wemakecollective#flatlay#lovemymakers#polveredipoesia#acolorstory#details_world#simplethingsphilosophy#creativeflatlays#magiadallemani#iorestoacasa #happyeaster#diykids#diyproject#easterdecor#eastereggs

Colouring Easter Symbols and more…
Colouring is one of the easiest ways to spend time! This time we don’t simply suggest you to “color” a draw but we want to give you more inputs to use it for more creative activities during Easter time.
One way to use your Easter colouring sheets is to improve using more techniques to color them! Don’t simply use the same way to be creative and color each draw challenging yourself. Discover which is the best way to be creative. Use crayons, watercolors, pencils and all the techniques you know. Be creative!
2. COLOURING AND MAKING UP A STORY FOR YOUR SYMBOLS
After colouring your sheets, why don’t you make up a story about it? This way to use a colouring sheet is perfect especially for kids. You can try to create a funny story that talks about what you have just coloured. Try it! It can help you to spend time and let imagination work.
3. COLOURING AND CREATING CUTE PLACEHOLDERS
Another funny way to use your coloured symbols is to use them as placeholders for Easter lunch! We suggest you to print sheets in a smaller scale in order to have symbols that can be placed on a plate or glued on a wood stick to be rested on the table.
