Did you know that on the other side of the world, yesterday was spring day? If the thought of the end of summer and the approach of winter is a bit upsetting, why not create a brand new garden of your own? This craft activity will bring you the height of summer all year round.
- Green paper
- Cupcake cups
- Photographs with faces
- A sheet of paper
I cut the ‘stems’ and ‘leaves’ out for Ameli, and dotted them with glue. She stuck them all over the place – a few of the leaves actually made it onto stems, but others were not so lucky. Either way, its important to let her craft without trying to guide her every step, so we’ll just assume those are some autumn leaves in the sky there!
Next, I dotted glue in the cupcakes and she pasted the faces inside, then we glued the cupcakes to the stems. Here I had to give a little help to make sure that the faces were the right side up.
And that’s the end of that – a garden of smiley, loved faces, and five or six less photographs in a box of never looked at pictures.
