It still feels as if Christmas has only just been and gone but valentines day is right around the corner and easter is not far behind. The shops have already started stocking eggs and my son has already started asking about easter eggs so I figured it wouldn’t be too early to start making some easter crafts. Besides, all you have to do is switch out the easter eggs for chicken eggs or flowers and this becomes a simple spring craft. So why not give this DIY easter photo frame a go!
You will need
Green/blue Paint and a paintbrush
Glue gun or strong glue
4 popsicle sticks
Start off by painting your popsicle sticks. You will need one Green, one blue and two half and half sticks. Put them aside to dry.
Whilst your sticks are drying you can make your decorations. We cut out a round yellow sun, a white cloud, two easter eggs which we decorated with pens and a fluffy sheep (see above for the shapes we used to make our sheep).
Once your Popsicle sticks are dry, glue them together as shown above with the green halves of your stick attached to the green stick and the blue halves attached to the blue ones.
Glue on your decorations and optionally use a marker to add a message to your frame. All that’s left to do is to cut out your chosen photo and glue it in place on the back of your frame.
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!
