Craft Tips and Tricks
Though we love to recycle old bottles or tins for crafts, they are often covered with labels which are sometimes hard to take off. The easiest way to do this is to fill a washing-up bowl with some warm water and soak the bottle in the water for ten minutes. The label should peel off very easily.
Or you might want to try applying a thick coat of cooking oil onto the label. Let the oil soak in overnight. Peel the label off. You may need to reapply oil onto sticky or partly dissolved glue that remain. Once the label is completely removed, wash with warm soapy water. You’ll get squeeky clean bottles or tins 😀
I’m in such a joyous Christmas mood that every single thing I see reminds me of Christmas! 😀
Let’s make a footprint snowman today 🙂
Paint your foot white. It’s gonna be ticklish! 😀
Stamp your painted foot onto a piece of dark coloured construction paper
Help the little one cut the tiny details such as the hat, scarfs, buttons, eyes and mouth.
You may use construction paper, felt or foam 🙂
Paste the tiny details
Your footprint snowman is done! 😀
P/S: I just realised the snowman doesn’t have hands! 😛

Art Crafts, YouTube tutorial
Today we are going to make a different kind of art. An art that requires the use of candle and flame. This requires close supervision of an adult. NEVER let your kid do this unsupervised.
Candle Polka Dots
First, I demo to my son how I lit a candle and let the wax drip on the art block.
Once I’m confident that he understands, I let him try.
He then paint the art block with various colours
Light a candle and let the wax drip on the colours.
Use a sponge and paint the whole art block with a darker color. We use black 🙂
Once the paint dries, use a coin to scrape off the candles and you’ll get beautiful dots of colours!
A beautiful work of art 😀
Coming up – See how we use the same technique to create a Christmas themed art 🙂
