My boys have too many cars. They are everywhere. We built a multi-level toy car garage using large toilet paper roll last weekend.
Toilet Paper Roll Multi Level Toy Car Garage
All we need are many huge toilet paper rolls and a thick board to support it at the back.
Paste double-layered tapes on the rolls and stick them together.
Glue a thick board at the back so the cars won’t fall off. My little boy had fun keeping his cars in the garage. I think it’s time to make him a bigger garage with more levels 🙂
Let’s go sailing! We’ll be making a sailboat out of milk carton today.
Milk carton sailboat craft
We’ll need an empty milk carton (washed, rinsed and dried)
Cut into half. Paste colored tape all around it.
Use a chopstick and paper for the sail and tape it onto the sailboat and it’s done. Simple!
Happy sailing! 🙂
This is a great school holiday crafts for kids. Today we will be transforming a simple plastic bottle into a cool Airplane Pencil Case.
Papier Mache Airplane Pencil Case
– Slit open an empty plastic bottle.
– Cut wings and tail out of old carton boxes and tape them onto the bottle
– Cut strips of old newspaper into small pieces and soak them in water
– Glue paper all over the entire bottle with the last layer being plain white paper.
– Let dry overnight
Paint the airplane and glue a 20cm zipper around the opening.
The Papier Mache Airplane Pencil Case is ready for your kids to show off to friends when school reopens ^_^
We saw some boxes lying at the corner of the craft room and came out with this impromptu idea of making a mini city for all his toy vehicles 🙂
After an hour or so of working together, we came out with this! 😀 Click here for full instructions.
Today we are going to blast off to the moon 😀
Paint the foot any colours you like and the toes orange or any other colours that represents the flame of the rocket.
It should be something like shown above 🙂
Stamp the painted foot on a piece of paper.
Glue 3 triangles – 2 at the sides and 1 on top and the rocket is ready for blast-off!
He loves rockets! 😀
We are very excited today. We did a paper mache aeroplane! We can now build our very own toys! Yeay!
Paper Mache Aeroplane
Cut wings and tail out of paper plate and attach to an empty plastic bottle using masking tape.
Spread glue on the bottle and paste wet shredded paper. Repeat until the entire bottle is covered.
It is best to paste few layers to get solid and hard aeroplane.
Finish with a layer of white recycled paper and let dry.
Paint it with the colour of your choice.
Paint windows and all. Let dry and spray a layer of varnish to seal the paint.
He now has a new aeroplane to play with! 😀
It’s been sometime since we last did a toilet paper roll craft. Today, let’s make a toilet paper roll jet 😀
Toilet Paper Roll Jet
Glue the egg carton to the toilet paper roll as what we did previously for the toilet paper roll plane. Refer to it here.
Paint it with the colour of your choice
Cut the necessary shapes out of coloured foam for the wings
Stick yellow cellophane sheets as the flame at the end of the jet 🙂

Let’s learn basic shapes today and along the way make a dump truck out of it 😀
I cut several basic shapes such as rectangle, square and circle. We also shredded some crepe paper.
Use a glue stick to stick the shapes
Paste the shapes onto an art block
Spread some glue on the top part of the dump truck
Stick the confetti (shredded crepe paper) on and you are done 😀
Basic shapes dump truck
Let’s go sailing today 🙂
Egg carton sail boat
We’ll need some colored corrugated papers, egg carton and wooden sticks
Draw a triangle on a drawing board and paint on both sides
Once dry, cut and paste on a wooden stick
Use a single hole punch and punch a hole in the middle of the egg carton
Paste corrugated paper to cover the egg carton
Place the wooden stick with the sail in the hole and sit two eggs in your sail boat 🙂
We are ready to sail 😀

This week during Creative Expression, the kids were told to act out the vehicles they love best. They were allowed to use only things that can be found in the studio as props.
Train.. Choo Choo!!!!
Car – Driving on Federal Highway. Obviously they haven’t tried driving through the massive JAM! See if they’ll still be able to smile then! 😛
Boat – Row, row, row your boat…
Aeroplane – Up, up and away!
Mat Rempit! @_@ (That is what we call those with BIG BIKES driving recklessly on the road!)
UFO – Unidentified Flying Object. Let’s make one today 😀
Paper plate UFO
You’ll need to paint two pieces of paper plates.
Decorate the paper plate with glitter paper.
Cut an alien out of green paper and paste.
Glue an empty plastic container over the alien.
Glue the two pieces of paper plates together.
We had a ‘Project UFO’ in the studio last Saturday.
And the kids loved it. These are some of their UFOs 😀
Boys will definitely love this craft 🙂
Craft go green 🙂 Don’t throw your empty bottles away. Today, we are going to make a rocket 🙂
Rocket from recycled bottle
– Get an empty bottle
– Wrap it with aluminium foil
– Press and squeeze it tight until you see the shape of the bottle forming
Use colored craft foams to decorate the rocket
– Make a cone out of paper and stick to the tip of the rocket
– Wrap it with aluminium foil and decorate as you wish
Your awesome rocket is done! 😀
Want to have your favourite animated characters as your fridge magnet? It does not have to cost alot. Try this simple to do fridge magnets…
Character Fridge Magnet / Note Holder
Take any of your favourite animated characters stickers.
Paste it onto any hardboard paper. I used name cards from the mail box. It's better to recycle them than to throw them away just like that.
Cut it and glue a cute peg at the back.
Glue a magnet on the peg and let dry.
Your fridge magnet is ready. Simple and inexpensive 🙂

If you have worked on an origami recently and would like to share with us, submit your origami here. We will link it back to you 🙂
Choo choo.. Let’s make a train today.
First, stretch your arm and draw the outline.
Dip the toothbrush bristles into colour of your choice.
Scrape the bristles against the comb.
Repeat using other colours.
Paste the 'arm' onto a piece of paper, forming a train.
Draw windows, tracks and smoke. Your train is ready. 🙂
Any idea on what else can we create from our arm? Let’s share here.
