Kids crafts

Since I have been very slack with my blog, I'll show you a few projects which I've done with the kidlets over the holidays

This little Marshmallow Snowman isn't my creation...I just wanted to pop him in the collection as well as this is a cool kids' craft!

He = 3 white marshmallows, 1 Choc-mint biscuit (or similar), icing, and 'stick' lollies like Fads for the arms.  He's stuck together with a toothpick...

just remember to take it out before shoving the whole thing in your mouth!! :) 


This little fella is made using Stampin' Up! punches and Black Journaler and Glue Dots.  A 'fairly' quick project to make the little candy canes a bit more novel when put in school friends' Christmas cards.



The next two creations are large 12x12 cardboard frames (I cut out the centres) and covered with contact (sticky back book covering).

The kids then decorated them with heaps of punch outs I had stashed and had fun (and no mess!)

To finish off the project, I just covered the 'back' with another piece of contact so there was no stick surface left to stick to the window or wall or wherever the art work would be displayed.

 
Random arrangement by the toddler

More orderly arrangement by the 'going on 4 year old'


Pop in tomorrow to see the snow globes!!
