Today has been yet another day of valentines day crafts. We’ve still got so many left to share that im hoping ill get chance to post them all before valentines! We started off today with these paper heart mice and how cute did they turn out? These make a great alternative to traditional valentines as there is space to write your own special message on the back of them!
You will need
Coloured Paper Googly eyes Pom Pom Yarn Glue Scissors
First you will need to make the body of your mouse. To do this cut out a circle from your coloured paper. We find the easiest way to get a perfect circle is to draw round a mug or some tape. Once you have your circle, cut one straight line in to the centre of it as shown above.
Now bring one side over the top of the other to create a round pyramid shape and secure it with tape or glue
Next, cut out a heart for your mouse’s face. Stick it onto the cone by gluing over your join line up to the point as you can see above. You may need to pull the edges of your heart forwards a bit to position the face better.
Cut and stick two small hearts for the ears and give your little mouse two googly eyes
Measure and cut a few equal lengths of yarn. Glue them at the bottom point of your heart to create whiskers and then glue a pom pom on top for the nose.
To finish off your mouse you need to make a cute curly tail! Cut a thin strip of paper. Take one end and roll it up to the other to create a spiral, loosen ot slightly then glue the outer end to the back of your mouse.
Your mouse is finished! How adorable does he look?
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
