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!

It’s Father’s Day today. The kids did a foam picture frame to present to their father (or mother as it is after all Parents’ Month this month)

DIY Foam Picture Frame.

You’ll need half an A4 size of coloured craft foam. Place a smaller rectangle paper in the middle of that craft foam and draw a line along it.

Cut according to the line.

Paste a sheet of plastic over the cut out hole. Stick using cellophane tape.

Paste a coloured construction paper on a piece of rectangle hard board card. Paste double layered tape as shown above.

Paste the rectangle craft foam over the hard board card. Punch two holes on the hardboard card and tie ribbon.

Decorate as you wish. I’ve always loved ladybug as I believe it brings good luck. Refer here for the foam ladybug tutorial.

The DIY foam picture frame is done!

During the school holidays, I brought our little crafty boy to the mall for some fun holiday crafts. They did a pencil topper that day.

My boy was given this piece of hard construction printed paper. He coloured it.

I thought he did a great job at coloring the horse! 😀

He then applied glue all over and placed a pencil in the middle.

Fold, seal and let dry.

He loves it so much that he wanted to make more for his teachers so he can give them when school reopens. We printed our own pictures and he did a few..

Watch this video of him printing and making a Butterfly Pencil Topper 🙂
