Big Brother loves to craft after school. Today we made some pretend cookies which he had a lot of fun with.
You will need:
white marker pen
your favourite cookie cutters
How to make pretend cookies:
Choose your favourite cookie cutters. The 4 year old chose some gingerbread men, a star and a Christmas stocking. He drew round each one and I cut them out.
Then he decorated each one using a white pen to make it look like icing.
There were four gingerbread men, one for each of us.
He added faces, buttons and lots of squiggles!
I think he enjoyed this as it was really simple but he was able to do most of it himself. Great for pretend play!
A couple of days ago we saw a great craft on cBeebies which the children immediately wanted to try for themselves. We painted a couple of paper plates with brown paint and left them to dry overnight.
Today we finished our paper plate robins off. Cutting one plate in half to make wings, adding a beak, red breast and googly eyes.
The children were pretty impressed with their efforts. After posing for a couple of pictures we hung them up in the window which is bursting with handmade Christmas decorations
Little Sis was so proud to give me this painting when I collected her from nursery this morning. Can you guess who it is?
