DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Winter Quilt Paper Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

Winter quilt paper craftThis is a great cut and paste paper craft project for decorating a wall or bulletin board this winter. 

When we did the winter quilt we were in a particularly creative mood and made each square with a different coloring technique.  The girls had fun exploring pastels, water color paints, pencil crayons, glitter pens and even a finger painted snowflake (we had to cut it out and glue it on another square of white paper as we made quite a mess of the fingerpainting!)

This turns out to be quite a large project (about 25 inches x 25 inches) and there are lots of templates to print.

Note:  If you'd like a smaller project (both in size and time) do a 4 square quilt instead of a 9 square quilt:  only print templates 1, 2, 4 and 5.

Alternatively, you might like to have a group of children each make a quilt piece or two and then assembling everyone's pieces into one quilt.
