Woohoo, it's time to celebrate our nation's birthday once again!
If you might recall, last year we made maracas, parade wands and flag buntings and had an awesome time with family and friends at the SAF Changi Seaview Resort. This year, we plan to invite friends over for a lunch gathering but other than that, I want my kids to remember this special moment and know that it is a time to rejoice, appreciate, reminisce and cherish.
So, in this week's Creativity 521, we did a DIY paper visor which was themed to something we are all proud of - the Singapore flag.
1) Matt photo paper or thick white paper (with visor outline printed, template can be found here)
3) Printout of our national flag emblem
4) Mini star-shaped cutouts
7) Red and white paint
8) Brush and palette
So, even though her second piece was not perfect either, it was a marked improvement from the first and it just made me realise how I need to have the willingness to let her try time and again without stepping in to make things 'better' and 'nicer' from my point of view. The only thing I did to help was to trim away the rough edges.
Next, fold along the dotted lines accordingly, making sure to crease the curved part slowly and one section at a time. Glue the middle section in place to form the brim.
Lastly, push the two ends of the visor to form a nice curved shape, then attach the ends of the strap onto both sides of the visor, making sure it fits snugly on the head. Voila! We are all done!
