We have hundreds upon hundreds of pom poms in our craft box and we rarely ever get to use them. This is simply because we have a baby in the house who loves to eat everything and anything. Pom poms seem to have a habit of getting everywhere and like all small crafty items prove a choking risk – any parent of a baby knows the process of constantly scouring the floor for any potential edibles! However, the other day she decided have a monstrously long nap. So, my son and i decided to have our own pom pom making party. We had loads of fun and came up with loads of super cute pom pom pals but this pom pom ladybug pal was our firm favourite!
You will need
1 Large red pom pom 1 medium black pom Several small black pom poms 2 googly eyes Glue (we used a glue gun as pom poms can be a bit fiddly!)
Take your head piece (the medium black pom pom) and glue it on to the big red pom pom which will make your ladybug’s body.
Cover your Ladybugs red body in the small black pom poms, these will be your ladybug’s spots. To finish her off, glue on two googly eyes! how cute is this little one! we loved them so much we made a couple and a little paper leaf for them to sit on.
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!
