Quilling is an art that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various shapes. It involved quite fine motor skills but with some help even young children are able to enjoy the process.
I was able to buy pre cut strips of coloured paper from a craft supply. (I think Spotlight has this product too.) We used bamboo skewers and chop sticks as our quilling tool but you could also purchase a specific tool. I prepared some earlier for our younger crafters and left the activity open ended allowing amazing designs to develop.
Well done Sunshine Artists – we would love to see what you create at home
