TISSUE PAPER BALLS. I visited Theresa and Iva while they were making these giant paper balls to decorate their day center ТУК-ТАМЕ – Къщата (Here&There – the House).


It will soon turn into one of the magic places in Sofia, a place where kids can study after school or, come summer, play in the front yard as much as they like. The balls can be made in a cinch – and they instantly transform any room. They are suitable for decorating kids’ parties. Similar balls (but made of cellophane) will be used to decorate the front yard of ТУК-ТАМЕ. Here’s how to make the balls: you need 8 sheets of tissue paper for each ball. When you’re done, tie the paper in the middle with a string. Spread the two parts like a fan and slowly separate each layer, supporting them with one hand while holding it with the other.

Raise the 4 layers very carefully (the paper is thin and breaks easily). You will now have half a ball. Valentine Day’s GARLAND. Easy NO-GLUE Red-and-White Garlands. This is a very pleasant activities for kids who are good at working with scissors.

bukiet z liści

You have to choose leaves that are soft and pliable, not dry- we picked ours from the trees in the park. Fold each leaf as shown on the photo above. Start winding carefully at one end. After you wind the leaf into a roll, place the next leaf and roll it again, making sure it’s not too tight. When you make a beautiful rose, tie it with a strong piece of string. These are the roses made by Irina Stoyanova; they reminded us to post the instructions for this pretty autumn craft. Dynie - proste. Nawlekanie rurek na sznurówkę. You need 2 dollars – one for thin shoelaces and one for a package of drinking straws – engage in the ultimate fine motor skills activity, stringing. The good thing about shoelaces is the hard end which is so easy to thread through cut-up drinking straws.

It’s a good activity for kids over 2 years of age… but while my toddler was stringing, my much older kid also sat by our side with a shoelace in her hand… so the age thing is quite relative… Truskawka z papieru.
