A couple of weeks back i bought a Giant class bag of buttons and haven’t got round to making any button crafts since. So today i thought i’d best bust them open and try and get something made with them. Not in the least to stop my other half saying i was buying stuff and not using it! It’s been a busy day so i decided it would have to be something quick and simple. Sometimes the cutest crafts are the simplest ones and sometimes all we want is a last minute make to gift. This cute little button Easter chick card is so quick and easy to make but it still looks adorable!
you will need:
Buttons (Brown and yellow)
Orange and black pens
Use larger buttons to make the body of your chicks and slightly smaller ones for the head. Make a large brown chicken on the left hand side to be the mother hen, then add two or three smaller ones to the right of her as if they were following behind.
Use your orange marker to add triangular beaks to each chicken. Then, using the same orange marker give each chick two little legs.
Glue a googly eye on to the head button of all the chickens and leave to dry. Once your card is completely dry, use your black marker to add your own special message to the top of the cards. your Easter card is finished! aren’t those little chickens just the cutest!
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!
