It’s time for show and tell once again !
This is a real fun upcycle I did using and old night stand.
It now is a wonderful play stove.
Be inspired! Get creating!
I mixed glue and water with some gold paint and glitter. The kids used a paint brush and covered the jar. Some of the kids wanted to stick tissue paper on their jars. I used tiny battery operated tea lights inside the jars that I found at the local dollar store which cost 2 for a dollar.
This ornament is very easy for the preschoolers to make and it is great for fine motor skills.
Each child was given a pipe cleaner.. a sparkely christmas coloured one of course. Then a big handful of buttons.
The children then strung the buttons onto the pipe cleaner. When they are done, a tiny bell is strung onto the pipe cleaner and it is twisted together to form a circle.
These ornaments are my fav!
This is a perfect craft for school agers. We took a styrofoam ball and some straight pins and sequins and started the sticking…
We pinned the sequins all over the ball until it was completely covered then we pinned ribbon on the top to hang it on our tree.
They are so pretty and sparkley with the lights!
We made a few different Christmas wreaths this year.
The first one we made was a green paper plate with the center cut out and we glued pom poms and sequins around the edges. We finished it off with a Christmas bow.
The next wreath we made was a toilet paper roll wreath.
The kids painted the rolls green and then helped me string them onto a clothes hanger that was already shaped into a circle. We then glued flowers on it and of course put on a big red Christmas bow.
This one is my favourite. It is made out of white garbage bags that are cut into stripes then tied to a coat hanger that has been reshaped into a circle.
Lots and lots of bags are needed =-)
