They’re off … they’re home. What do we do? Only so long to toboggan & then back inside. I really don’t want them watching tv/video all the time. Let’s craft! To be honest, only 2 of the kids are into ‘crafting’ & the other one, well, “I’ll read, thanks, when are we doing the gingerbread house?” LOL
I saw this craft in my Martha Stewart Magazine. I thought it would be fun to have a go. So here’s an easy craft for the kids, well, my take on it anyway. I think I wasn’t paying all that close attention, because the tree circles had less folds than in Martha’s Magazine, but did I mention we had 8 hands at work?
Glue (tombo glue, quick drying & strong!). Glue, skewer, + kids, need I say more? no photos.
After glueing the circles (carefully & really sticky) on a bamboo skewer, we dried it on it’s side (suspended between two books). We then cut down the skewer we stuck the stick in some plasticine & TAH DAH. The Star was added at the top of the skewer. The star was made of 5 star punches bone folded in the centre & then glued on to the top of the skewer.
Used: Always Artichoke DSP, More Mustard CS, Bambo Stick (cut down), Tombo Glue, Star Punch, Bone Folder, Cutter, Paper Piercer.
