So, we have been staying home more than usual in the hope that all of us will recover from our coughing fits soon. That said, we still brought the kids to watch The Amazing Spiderman 2 on Labour Day, attended a birthday party, visited the library and went out for late night suppers. Seriously, who brings two kids out for fishball noodles at 10pm at night? Well, we just did last night. I guess, life goes on, right?
Anyway, among all of us, Angel has been the least sick and I thought it was a little unfair that she has been missing out on a lot of fun just because Mummy has been feeling more tired than usual. Thus, in this week's Creativity 521, I decided to let her get crafty using supplies we can find at home.
We did something really simple, straightforward but fun - DIY Cuff Bracelets! The main material you need is toilet rolls!
1) Toilet rolls
2) Acrylic paint
3) Painting tools
6) Scrapbooking paper
7) Decorations like alphabet stickers, gem stickers, sequins, shape die-cuts or other embellishments of your choice
You can use alphabet stickers to let your child spell her name and make a personalised bracelet.
Ta-dah! How do you like her final cuff bracelets? I told you they were simple, but being simple doesn't mean they can't be beautiful, right? If anything, I'm so proud that she did all these and guess what, we finished everything in less than an hour!
Now, are you in the mood to make your own DIY cuff bracelets too?
