We’ve been doing lots of artwork and crafts lately but I just can’t find the time to post it! Today I managed to squeeze in this post πŸ˜€

We did some magic painting the other day in the Studio and the kids loved it! I prepared some ‘magic sheets’ before the arrival of the kids.

I drew some pictures on drawing blocks using white crayon hence the pictures are not visible to the children’s eyes.

Can you see what I’m drawing? πŸ™‚

To the kids, this is just a plain sheet of paper! Then comes the FUN part!

They were told to simply paint anywhere on the paper and to their delight, they saw pictures emerging!

The boys got excited when they saw vehicles on their drawing block.

While the girls were happy with cuter stuffs like cute heart shapes and flowers πŸ˜€

This is one activity that the kids really love and I think I’ll draw more detailed pictures next time to excite them. Ben 10 for the boys and Smurfs for the girls? Nah… I’m not that talented! πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

After an hour or so of working together, we came out with this! πŸ˜€ Click here for full instructions.

I did a craft stick stationery holder with my student earlier this year. Refer to it here. Back then my boy was too young to make that.

Today, he is ready to make his own craft stick stationery holder and requested for a rainbow theme πŸ˜€

Rainbow craft stick stationery holder

Paint the craft sticks with your favourite colours

Let them dry

Paste the toilet paper roll onto a piece of hard board and cut

Spread glue all over

Stick the craft sticks all around the toilet paper roll

Let it dry and decorate as you wish

I tied ribbon around it to hold the craft sticks together better πŸ™‚

Wanna see what I did? Here…
