Just the other day, the girls were saying "Mummy, we haven't done painting in a long time". Well, I think two weeks is considered a lonnngggg time to them, but in any case, I agreed that it was time for me to get out of procrastination and do something fun with them.
As you know, I don't really like to spend money to buy materials for crafts but would rather search through the house and see what we can come up with. In this week's Creativity 521, we made use of a recycled material to do something simple but fun - Egg Carton Animals.
1) Egg carton
2) Painting supplies
6) Felt, foam paper, or coloured paper
7) Pipe cleaners
8) Googly eyes
Ta-dah! And we are done with all six animals within an hour or so. I was pleasantly surprised that Angel drew eyelashes on some of the animals, cute right? Which is your favourite of all?
P.S. They are thrilled with their new animal friends and have decided that we will be telling a story tonight with them. This should be fun!
