garden project #1

This one requires some forward planning so I am posting it now in the hope you can complete it some time in spring!  I just LOVE the colours and shapes in these amazing garden sculptures made by lids of all shapes and sizes!  This is recycling at it’s best.

Start saving your lids now, plan your design, glue together (using suitable glue to bond plastics and survive outdoors) then voila!

Be sure to send us a photo of your creations.

And she even includes a recipe to make your own playdough (yes, even in DIRT colour!)

Happy gardening peeps.

 

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.
