Happy Birthday Ah Yee!

Handicraft for kids, Special Moments

We had an earlier birthday celebration for my boys’ Ah Yee this year, as it is also her first year celebrating with us as Mrs Goh.

On Friday 6th July 2012, after Binbin is off from school, we went straight to……

but the heat started 3 days ago, when the kids were busy thinking what to give their Ah Yee as a birthday present. With them juggling school work, school hours, they have little time to MAKE anything. But when they put their HEART to it, the impossible became possible.

They took 3 days to complete. A few minutes a day to get ALL these done.

They loved their Yee-Zhang too, so he has a share of their ‘heartwork’ above as well.

We were late, due to the massive jam. Stuck on the road for more than 1 hour, for what used to be just a 10mins drive! *faint* So everyone was super hungry, including myself and I totally forgot to take shots of what we ate! *slap forehead*

Still everyone had a great time (once again) chatting till 11+pm! *laugh*

Kids Craft ~ Paper Stuffed Animal

Handicraft for kids

Photobucket

Its been raining, so outdoor fun has been reduced.

How else to entertain your child during the school holidays when you two are ‘stuck‘ at home?

Do kids craft!

This was one of Keatkeat’s school holiday project ~ making a paper stuffed animal.

Well, I told him that he should choose an animal that is ‘big and fat‘, so that it would be easier for him to stuff the paper balls in.

So he had changed his ‘Bird‘ to the biggest land animal, Elephant.

Things you need: ~

  1. A4 Size Paper x1
  2. Some unwanted thin papers
  3. Scissors
  4. Glue
  5. Pencil / Marker

Step 1: Fold the A4 size paper into half

Step 2: Draw the animal on one side of the paper

Step 3: Cut out the paper animal with the paper still folded, so as to create two pieces.

Step 4: Use pencil or marker to draw the features of the animal onto the paper

Step 5: Put glue on the perimeter of the paper animal. Glue HALF of the two sides of the paper animal together, so that there is space for your child to put in the paper balls. If the ‘hole’ is too small, there is a chance that your child might tear his paper animal.

Step 6: Tear the thin paper into small pieces and crush them into paper balls.

Step 8: Complete the kids craft by sealing up the other half of the paper animal. If the parts are too small for the tip of the glue, a cotton bud will do the trick. *wink*
