Inspired by FamilyFun’s dyed egg scuba diver craft, we improvised and came out with this:

Snorkeling pencil holder

We’ll need a large toilet paper roll, a sauce cup, a straw and a rubber band for this craft.

Glue the toilet paper roll onto a cardboard.

Paint the toilet paper roll.

Draw circles. Use paper punch to punch out smaller circles out of black craft foams. Paste.

Paste everything onto the toilet paper roll and let dry.

Little cute toilet paper rolls ready for some snorkeling fun!

I’ve always loved the fine art of pottery. I wish to try pottery with the students but I can’t find a good enough clay yet.

In the meantime, remember the kids’ paper twisting project previously? Refer to it here. Let’s get them to train their ‘pottery’ skills using crepe paper instead :)

We will need a large toilet paper roll. Glue a cardboard at the base and let dry.

We’ll need lots of strips of crepe paper.

Twisting crepe paper is good to train the little kids’ motor skills and coordination.

Apply glue on the toilet paper roll and paste the twisted crepe paper, rolling and repeating with new strips of paper until you’ve covered the entire roll.

The kids busy with their masterpiece.

The completed crepe paper pencil holder.

The kiddo decorated it to be a colourful alien bunny ^_^

Another kid did this creative BEE!

Aren’t they beautiful? I’d be very proud to have them on my working station :)

It’s Valentine’s Day in a few minutes time. We did a Valentine craft today. It is a Valentine’s Torch.

While we were thinking of what we wanted to project on the wall, I asked my boy what he knows about Valentine’s Day. His answer is simply CUPID! I do not know how to draw a cupid. Thank goodness we have a printer that we can simply google for a picture of cupid and print it out!

To see how you can turn these printouts:

Into a torch shown below:

You’ll need to check out this short 4 mins video of how my boy turned a simple printout into an amazing torch! :) The only thing I did was to cut the objects out for him. Enjoy!
