craft express – recycled rocket ships

You know we have a long history with loo rolls and here is another fab idea!

If you have left over rolls from baking paper or foil, even better.  The longer the better and faster (looking) the rocket!

You can use your imagination based on the picture above, or follow this tutorial.  Either way, enjoy!

 

 

fab christmas idea #20

This is a fab idea to do with the kids for Christmas cards or gifts for the grandparents, aunties and uncles!

Just add their hand print (upside down) in white paint, draw on a face, glue on eyes and a cut out Santa hat.

A lovely little keepsake reminding us just how small their hands were the year before …

fab christmas idea #10

We are sharing the love here tonight with this cool pipe cleaner craft project.

love pipecleaner

Simply wrap various coloured wool around joined pipe cleaners (you can join them by winding ends together) then twist into whatever word you like (or love!).

You’ll need to help littler ones out with this, however school age kids should be OK to manage with little or no assistance.
