craft express – clothes peg dragonflies

All you’ll need to whip up these little beauties is some wooden clothes pegs, textas or paint for the detail and some paper for the wings.  If you have “google eyes” in your craft collection then you can use those too!  Otherwise just use white paper with black texta.

You’ll need to help little ones cut out the wing shapes to attach to the peg, or you can draw them onto a sheet of paper and glue the painted peg to the paper (as seen below).

You can also add buttons, glitter or other details – whatever you have available!

Easy peasy.

 

 

craft express – fingerprint art

All you’ll need for these little cuties is a stamp pad, some fingers and a pen to add detail. If you want to get a bit fancy you can add snazzy paper like the fox’s ears below. Easy peasy.
