There might be an influx of unicorn crafts over the next few days, my unicorn mad niece came to visit a few weeks back and we spent hours sat making all different unicorn crafts. After a busy couple of weeks I’ve only just managed to start to sort and upload them. I really love these Simple unicorn corner bookmarks, they look gorgeous and were easy enough for her to make all by herself too. In fact like with many of the crafts we make – i now have a whole herd of them that’s she’s made to go in our books! If you have 5 minutes to spare, why not give one a go?
You will need
Coloured paper or card
First of all you will need to fold your origami corner bookmark. If you haven’t made one before you can find a photo guide on how to make your own here.
Now you’ll need to cut out the shapes to go on the unicorns head. Using the same colour as your bookmark; cut out two ears. Then use some coloured paper to cut out two smaller inner ears and a unicorn horn.
Next you’ll need to give your unicorn two eyes, we use eye stickers but if you don’t have them you can simply cut out two white circles and draw the details on with a marker. For the nose, cut out a coloured oval and optionally add a mouth or some nostrils. Glue the eyes and nose down.
Cut out two little circles and glue them down to make two rosy cheeks. We used a hole punch to punch out two perfect little circles. Your unicorn bookmark is finished! Don’t they look fab?!
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!
