Resist Art Dove Craft
Doves are white so make a great animal for experimenting and attempting some resist art.
Print and cut out a dove template onto some coloured paper, you can use white if you don’t have any, coloured paper just makes it a bit easier. Use some blue tack to stick the template down on a piece of white paper.
Pour blue and white paints into a reusable dish. Scrunch some tin foil up to make a ball. Dip the ball into the paint and use it to paint around the dove.
When the paint is dry you can remove the template and the blue tack. You can then draw the doves features in. Ta Da, some beautiful resist artwork for the wall.
Print out the dove template and stick it onto a piece of cardboard from a cereal box or similar. Take a craft stick and tape it onto the back to make a puppet. Children can pretend to make the dove fly and deliver messages.
Pigeons and doves look very similar because they belong to the same family of birds. Doves are just a bit smaller in stature. So you could use these dove templates as pigeon templates as well.
