The Pink Drink

One of Miss M's favorite books the last few weeks has been Pinkalicious and the Pink Drink. Of course, this was just asking for a pink lemonade craft project to go along with it.

I cut a simple glass shape from a piece of paper and Miss M glued it down onto a background. She then cut and glued pink tissue paper into the glass,

glued down a straw, and topped it all with a piece of contact paper to make it look like a drinking glass.


In hindsight, this would have been easier if we had glued it to the background last, as trimming the tissue paper to fit the glass shape once it was already glued down took some work.

I am linking this to stART at A Mommy's Adventure and Kids Get Crafty at Red Ted Art.

  1. What a very pretty pink drink. I think working with tissue paper is lovely for young children.. all that crunchy crinkly sound. And your result looks fab (even if it was fiddly to trim the paper..)

    Thanks for linking to Kids Get Crafty!

  2. The pink drink looks wonderful. Cutting tissue is hard.
