Magical Beans Mosaic
This magical bean mosaic is a wonderful activity for kids and adults to do together.
- Canvas boards
- Small paintbrush
- Craft glue
- Dried beans
Start by drawing a pattern in pencil on your canvas board. You can create geometric designs, a still life, or even a portrait in dried beans -- think of it as a color-by-numbers painting.
"Paint" a thin layer of glue in one area of your pattern, and sprinkle the area with colorful beans. Use a single color in each area.
Use the ruler to tidy up the edges of the beans before moving on to the next area.
Repeat steps 1 through 3 until the board is covered. Let dry for 1 hour.
