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: ~A4 Size Paper x1Some unwanted thin papersScissorsGluePencil / 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 7: Put the paper balls into the paper animal
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*
