The cold days in London has come and we are now stuck at home more than ever :/
I wish it could snow, kids would be happier and get tired quicker :P
Last weekend I sat with Ela to an easy and effortless craft we both enjoyed very much.
I had in mind something very manual she could almost fully made by herself, maybe with a little help from my ultimate glue gun.
Something made of simple, popular and fuss-free materials like :
- wooden clothespins
- toilet paper tubes
- egg cartons
- felt tip pens
- kids craft supplies(pipe cleaners, feathers etc.)
We begin with choosing a first body for Ela's animal.
Toilet roll is the easiest to work with.
Simply cut it to open ...
Then draw some fun patterns on it.
We than attached a head using hot glue and tail by making a hole in toilet roll with a bamboo stick to thread a pipe cleaner.
And the whole rest of it :)
Ela really gets into the patterns :)
I did too.
Next we wanted to make bodies using egg cartons...
Then ended on large piece of thick cardboard and many drawing pins :)
So this is our made up animals :)
A whole bunch of it :)
Possibilities are endless, kids can even have some fun by swapping heads and legs too ;)
Get your kids to use their imagination and join in!
