Do you craft with your kids? During the summer vacation it is easy to find a little time and create a fun project for your kids to keep them occupied for a few hours.
Felicia helps us to start creating.
It has been a long time since my children made their own birthday cards to give to friends (which makes me sound ancient I know!!) but this used to be one of their favourites. You don’t even need to use the dies; you just need two oval shapes that you cut around, one bigger than the other.
- A blank card (or make your own)
- Brightly coloured backing paper
- Green card
- Googly eyes
- Black marker
- Spellbinders Oval dies
Cut your backing paper and glue onto your card.
Cut 1 large and 2 smaller ovals from the green card.
Position the small ovals halfway under the large oval to create eyes.
Glue all the pieces in place when you’re happy with the position.
Add the googly eyes.
Draw on a smiley mouth and nostrils.
You could also use white card and let kiddos paint or colour it green (or whatever colour they want their frogs to be!)
This is a fun project and you can think about other animals that are easy to recreate with simple shapes.
