Art Activity Afternoon Project- 3D Letters

For the last 3 weeks of the year, children get to opt into a fun activity and each class is a mixture of years 3-6. I had about 24 in my art group and thought we'd attempt an ambitious project over the 3 1-hour sessions.

I came across this idea on this website. It has step-by-step instructions and a helpful video tutorial too if any of you want to attempt it at home over the holidays!

Each child could choose one letter (most went for their first initial) and over the 3 weeks we planned, created the structure and then finally decorated.
Here are some photos of the overall process:

These were so much fun and it was great to see some of the older children help those in younger year groups. These were a huge success and definitely attracted the most attention in the art gallery. I will definitely be doing these again next year for the art activity afternoons.



  1. So good! Are there specific instructions on what you covered the letter with once you connected the 2 with paper cups?

  2. Thanks. Yes, in the first part there's a link to the step by step instructions :)
