So it's been a rough week at home as we are all recovering from a bout of food poisoning. Yup, thankfully we are all feeling better now and hopefully we can get to enjoy the rest of the September holidays.
In this week's Creativity 521, we are sharing with you what we made for Teacher's Day to show our appreciation for these people who have made a difference in the lives of the little ones. Now, as always, I believe in doing something that is easy, simple but handmade as a way to show our sincerity. Yup, sorry teachers, no expensive gifts from us.
Since we still have a stash of toilet rolls at home, we thought it would be nice to make something special for these teachers who are as wise as owls. Yup, here's showing you how we made DIY Toilet Roll Owls. It doesn't sound that aesthetically pleasing, but they do look cute in the end, I can assure you that!
1) Toilet rolls
2) Glue/sticky tape
3) Coloured paper
4) Scrapbooking paper
8) Googly eyes
9) Optional: Message printout, decorative stickers
After that, Angel took the lead and helped to draw out tear-shapes from the scrapbooking paper, cut them out and stuck them onto the sides of the owl to form the wings. I love how the patterns create a nice contrast, don't you?
Now, we always like to personalise our kids so we wanted to write the teachers' names as well as the kids' names so that they can remember. To make it extra special, I asked the kids to put on an owl hat (how apt, right?) and printed out pictures of them, along with the text "Owl always be grateful to you. Happy Teacher's Day 2016".
TA-DAH! And we were all done! I really love how these owls look in the end, very simple, very cute, very us. I sure hope that the teachers will love these and feel our heartfelt gratitude!
