Glitter Glue Art

Glitter Glue ArtThe first time I tried to work with Glitter Glue, I had no clue what to do with it and the best art I was able to produce was 3D lettering that took forever to dry. Then I started to look around for glitter glue art. It is very versatile and you can create a simple art to a very complicated art. Here are 2 samples. The simple one needs no explanation. The other one is a glitter glue art done on paper. The outline of the picture is drawn on the glass of the photo frame. Paint all of the glass black leaving the inside of the outline of the picture. Frame the art work for a scintillating display. Send us your glitter glue art pictures at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Keep Them Busy - Trapecolo

Trapecolo is a very creative play set of 180 colorful trpezoid  shaped mosaics. These mosaics can be laid down in plenty of patterns on the frame. The frame can stand to display the finished design.

 

It is a very engaging game which encourages the understanding of geometry and helps to stimulate the child's imagination. It gives a basic idea about angles, straight lines, symmetry, asymmetry, parallels etc. It comes with the instructions which has different design patterns. The older kids can use their own creativity to create all sorts of fun designs outside of the tray and will give them a sense of achievement.

 

This game is part of Bamboo Collection Games. Bamboo Collection games is a range of family games and little resent games.
