With Mother's Day coming up, as usual, I wanted to do something simple but handmade with the girls. Before you get it wrong, no, I don't just get them to do something for me, I take the chance to ask them to make something for their grandmothers and even great-grandmother too. Yes, it's the perfect occasion to show our appreciation for these people who brought us into the world, raised us, loved us and gave us so much to be thankful for.
I didn't want to spend too much money so I dug around our house in search of recycled and craft materials. Then, an inspiration hit me when I thought about our recent trip to Tulipmania at Gardens by the Bay. Why not make some origami tulips, put them in a vase and include a personalised card? Here's sharing how we did it in today's Creativity 521.
1) Empty toilet rolls
2) Scrapbooking paper
3) Origami paper
4) Photo printout
5) Coloured pens
7) Gem stickers
10) Pipe cleaners
11) Long ruler
13) Sticky tape
Next, using the base of the roll, we traced a circle on the scrapbooking paper, cut it out and glued it on.
instructions so that the kids can do it step by step. You can also watch the video tutorial first so that you can pretend to be an origami expert and be able to help the little ones.
Here's wishing all mums a Happy Mother's Day 2016 and may we treasure each day we get to spend with our beloved kids!
