Bricolage hélicoptère

Bricolage hélicoptère
It’s come to my attention that the crafts on our blog are (just a little) on the girly side. BUT I know there are mums out there with boys who might not be interested in all things pink and sparkly, so here we have made (or rather I have made – the girls didn’t want a bar of this one!) some cute & easy egg carton helicpoters. Mums, you will need to do the fiddly bits here, but the boys (or girls) can help out plenty, and they will love playing with these cute-as-custard little “toys”. You will need: • Egg Carton(s) • Craft knife and cutting mat • Paint & brushes • Scissors • Paper • Marker • Split pins How to: Cut your egg carton into single pieces, snipping the tall part off and cutting it in half for the tail. You will need more tall parts (you might need another carton for this). Paint these parts, making a half circle at the front for the windcreen. Like this. Once dry, add detail with a black marker. Glue them together into a cross shape. All done.

Bricolage train A few days ago, the girls and I embarked on what turned out to be an epic craft project. Looks & seems simple enough, right? That’s what I thought anyway. Avanture kod kuće: Lijep konj marioneta Our puppet craze continues in earnest - we've made another marionette - but this time it's a horse. He's been named Handsome, and he is brilliant. He clip-clops around the house on his mismatched button hooves and he is particularly good at jumping. Here's a little clip of his skills in action: I love that Handsome is made entirely from recycled and found materials; frayed string for his mane, forelock and tail (just seen), and empty toilet rolls for his head and body. Sezonski Konfeti Shakers: vještom Avanture Posted by jude on Friday, November 4, 2011 · 21 Comments I have to confess, that I wasn’t sure what to call these – they’re not quite sun-catchers, and not really snow-globes, so I decided on Confetti Shakers in the absence of any other ideas. These were born when I accidentally discovered, in one of those ‘Eureka’ moments that you have now and then, that the lid of a Pringles tube, fits exactly onto the lid of a tub of cottage cheese from Tesco (I think other products have the same lids too, mine just happened to be cottage cheese!) My mind of course ran riot with potential ideas of how I could use this discovery (you can see I lead a rather sheltered life), but I decided to create these shakers because I’ve always loved snowglobes, sun-catchers and glittery things in general.

It was a very wet weekend and as you can imagine the kids were getting restless by the end of it. Time to get crafty! Kids Spring Crafts As the snow melts and the weather (hopefully) warms it's time to turn to our attention to baby birds hatching, flowers blooming, butterflies emerging and rainbows coming from the rainy weather. The best part is that all of these things make great kids spring crafts and are a lot of fun to do on a rainy day or a day that's still a little too cold to go outside to play. These spring crafts are all made with fun materials, many of which you most likely already have in your home. As always, we created and tested all of these crafts in our own home so we can assure you that they are all fun and child-friendly!

Tippytoe Crafts: Grouchy Ladybugs Today we read Eric Carle's The Grouchy Ladybug. I taught the kids all about these tiny beetles and then we got to work on making some. I got my idea from here, but I changed it a bit. We started with these materials: Posluživanje Pink Lemonade: Mirna knjiga I'm really excited to share this project with you. Several months ago someone put the idea into my head that I should make some quiet books. This is one project that I've never really had the desire to do, but that little seed kept growing until one day I found myself drawing up the templates and then at JoAnn's buying the supplies. It really was an easy project, but extremely time consuming (and I was making two at once.) Here are the results:
