Today we made simple sun catchers using paper plates which I thought I would share.
Equipment needed to make a paper plate Christmas tree sun catcher:
coloured squares of cellophane
How to make a paper plate Christmas tree:
Cut out a tree shape from the center of a paper plate and cover it with a piece of contact paper.
Cut the cellophane squares into small pieces and place over the cut out Christmas tree.
Make sure there aren’t any gaps! When you have finished cover the other side of the paper plate with contact paper, trim if necessary.
Punch a hole in the top of the paper plate and thread with string to hang in the window.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it before but we’re big fans of Twinkl, they make lesson plans and activities and brilliant primary teaching resources. I was looking for some fun activities for the children to do and found a fun gingerbread house printable.
The 4 year loves to colour with his special pens. He keeps these in their packet and doesn’t let his sister use them.
Little Sis loves to scribble and will finish a colouring book in one sitting if she can.
Both these pictures are currently stuck on the back doors so we can admire them. Let the Christmas crafting commence!
Little Sis and I had a crafty morning today. We did painting, glueing and writing all before our first Dinky Dancers session.
Material needed to make hand print ghosts:
How to make hand print ghosts:
Little Sis loves to feel paint on her hands so she let me paint one hand with the white paint. Then she carefully placed her hand on the sheet of black paper. We did this a couple of times to make sure we had some good prints.
Then we set them aside to let them dry.
To finish our ghosts off we rotated the sheet of paper 180° and added googly eye stickers.
The children are really excited about Halloween already so these will be fun to hang up nearer the time.
