Do-it-Yourself Craft

Do-it-Yourself Craft
All children look forward to summer holidays, away from school – the discipline, studies. Summer holidays are a time for children to have fun, freedom, adventure. It becomes a job for Parents to keep them occupied. Here are few Craft Tips which can be used to occupy your kids, and help them learn to do stuff with their hands.
Lil Birds
These adorable birds will make any child's imagination soar. We think flat shells work best for this project, but experiment with different shapes. Hang them individually, or try suspending a flock of birds from the ceiling in your kid's bedroom using hooks or pushpins.

  • Colored paper, such as recycled gift wrap, Scissors
  • Small leaves and twigs
  • Glue
  •  Flat shells
  • 16-inch-long string or thin ribbon
  • Thick paper  

    Rock Painting
    This little clan of owls is so whimsical that it's sure to inspire your kid's creativity. You can use acrylic paints or brush pens, which you may find easier to control on small areas. When looking for the right pebbles, try to find ones with flat bottoms so they can stand up on their own.
  • Large smooth pebbles
  • White acrylic paint
  •  Paintbrush
  •  Colored paints
  •  Brush or felt-tip pens

Next time your family is on a nature walk, point out how many different types of grass you can spot (you'll be surprised how many there actually are) and pick some of your favorites to use in this craft. It will look lovely on a playroom wall or porch.

  • Grasses, wheat (from a floral or crafts store), your favorite seeds from a garden shop, acorns (tops broken off)
  • Clay
  • Rolling pin
  • Round cutter
  • Paintbrush
  •  Ribbon
