The year end is near and that calls for a celebration. Let’s make a fireworks artwork today πŸ˜€

Dilute some paints (the more watery the better) and drip some on art block. With a straw in your mouth, blow to spread the paint. Repeat this process until you’ve achieved the fireworks you desires πŸ˜€

Since the little boy started school, it is a headache to think of what to make for him to bring to class.

I made this cute little cheese sandwiches the other day and he super loves it! Read the full entry here.

I have to think creatively now to add ‘excitement’ into his lunch box. I’m not into making a full-fledged bento. Too much hassle and I always believe, the more we handle the food, the more contaminated it can be -__-

Let’s make a honeycomb using bubble wrap today πŸ˜€


Paint a piece of bubble wrap

Place the painted surface down on a piece of paper

Paint your thumb and stamp all over as the bees

Paint the wings and draw lines on the bees.

Now comes the fun part. Mix some paint with PVA glue.

Drip the mixture onto the honeycomb

Hold the paper up and see the paint mixture flow creating honey in the honeycomb πŸ˜€

Optional : I cut some ovals out of yellow foam and get the kids to paste them onto the honeycomb. Paste plastic wings too.

Let’s make a bird today. Not an angry bird but a cute one πŸ˜€

Toilet Paper Roll Bird

Paint a toilet paper roll any colour to your liking.

Paint your thumb white and stamp as the white eye. Paint your pointer black and stamp again as the eyeball πŸ˜€

Cut two triangles out of orange construction paper for the beak

Spread PVA glue all over the toilet roll

Now it’s the fun part – Sticking feathers onto the bird.

Instead of buying feathers from craft store, I bought a brand new feather duster and stripped the feathers from it instead. It’s much cheaper that way!
