Handywithscissors. Handywithscissors. So...It happened, I led my first ever workshop as Handy with Scissors! It is strange you know because I have managed and been part of countless kids workshops in my role as Coordinator of Kids and Families Programs at the Museum of Contemporary Art ,Australia but to lead a workshop of my own, under my own name was somehow terrifying. I think in retrospect this workshop in my mind had become the culmination of all the work I had put into Handy and all my insecurities about where it all may lead. Would the kids like my ideas? Would they like me? Turns out I really had nothing to worry about. I would like to shout out here to Meri Cheri who inspired the original idea for the hangings and to Reverse Garbage Creative Reuse Center who donated some of the materials. So now to share a little about the materials, prep and the workshop itself! I loved Meri's original idea for these hangings which predominantly used mixed yarns.

Create an epic fairy garden for kids using an old water table. Instead of trying to get it clean, let your kids experiment with growing plants and creating a mini garden. Do you have a water table in your back yard? Does it tend to become the disgusting mess of a toy after every rain?

Don’t get me wrong… we have some fond water table memories, but ours just ended up looking dirty and disgusting more often than not. So this year we decided to give it a facelift!

Check out our water table makeover! How we created our fairy garden for kids We started by drilling extra drainage holes all along the bottom of the water table. Next, we filled it with potting soil. I let V pick out a few smaller plants and a couple of packs of seeds to put in her garden. We continued to add to our garden one thing at a time. Outdoor movie, YES! It would be really fun to fill blow up pools with blankets and sheets and pillows to lay in while the movie is playing! | Pinterest | Κολύμ… Gr.pinterest. HGTV - Accueil. Facebook.

Our 1st grade team does an annual Polar Express themed party, and they make an awesome train that goes down one side of the hallway. I really wanted to dress up the other side with what might be seen out of the train windows. A town square with a huge 3D Christmas tree, a town hall, toy store, residential neighborhood, Santa and his reindeer flying through the night, a train station with a train schedule, ticket booth, and railroad crossing.

It’s time to put a new string art display out for the summer months – today we are showing you how to make an easy sailboat string art for kids and beginners. We are using yarn for these simple projects as it’s easier for little hands to handle, if you are doing this project with older kids you can just use a regular string. *this post contains affiliate links* I just love how string art decor looks, and as it’s pretty easy to make you can have a new display each month (or season).

What you need: Directions: Lightly sketch a sailboat onto your wood board with a pencil. Begin to pound your nails by driving them into the wood about half way. Keep the nails about 1/2″ apart. We string our board in this order: Red, Yellow, White, Blue and Black. Create the outline of your yarn by wrapping the yarn around the outside of the nail and moving to the next nail.

When you reach the starting point, cut your yarn and knot it with the starting yarn. DIY Ιστιοφόρο σε βάζο από Φελλό | Τεχνοτροπίες Και Διακόσμηση.

This can be a fun four seasons craft for kindergarten, as well as for preschoolers although assistance from parent or teachers will be needed. There are many ways the kids can decorate this project, and there certainly is no need to limit yourself to markers, crayons or pens!

With scrap paper, tissue paper pom poms and other materials that “pop” you can give this 4 seasons tree craft even more dimension. We will talk about ideas for decorating the seasons a bit more in the tutorial itself (we’ve got quite a few for each of the season). What you need: Spring Summer.

The kids loved it, making their creatures move within a maze each of them created, with personalized challenges and themes. This year my son was studying about magnets and after creating a collaborative theatre with his class, he was excited to share this idea with his sister so they worked on a small maze for a magnetized bug. You could also make a more simple version of an obstacle course with objects to move around or avoid. We learned a few tricks from these two sites to make the process successful for a pre-schooler!

Egg Carton Fairy Dolls — ART CAMP. The girls and I have been so happy to see the endless stream of egg carton mermaid dolls that are being created and shared on the interwebs. Never in our wildest dreams did we expect that the result of our sleepy Saturday morning craft session would become a viral sensation. Wavy, Splash, and Breeze aren't letting the fame go to their tails, though.

They are still the humble, playful gals they've always been. They have been such loyal companions to H and R we thought we would surprise them with an island getaway. Breeze has been dreaming of a Maui vacation since she was a tiny little mer-pole so it was not even a question of where they would be heading. We threw them an intimate little bon voyage party and they promised to send postcards. We have to admit that it has been a little lonely since the Mers left town. Materials: 1. Print or draw your fairy template. Cut your fairy shape out into two parts: torso/head/wings and legs. Start to paint your fairy sections.
