In this case, I did some preparatory work, using a Cordless Drill

afterwards, the kids could start stringing, and that wasn’t easy!

On the table a pile of wooden sticks in several sizes.

A real lesson for the children, to build the tree from large to small

we did it with thin wire, so they don’t have to use needles

Tip: when you have lots of time to fill up,

you can paint the tree as well.

We went into the woods to find acorns and Christmas branches.

afterwards we melt some grease in a pan, mixed the seeds and put them in the acorns.

We filed up a flowerpot and a coconut husk and put it all together with tin wire.

Buddha looked at it with a satisfied smile.

Easter Themes

Make & Paint a paper Butterfly

During the Easter egg hunt, you have lots of empty egg trays. Here is an idea what to do with it. Some paint, an egg tray, a hanger (not necessary but gives directly a hook) and some ribbon. You can add some beads and buttons too.

When you make a lot of paper butterflies you can use them as a homemade decoration for a birthday party

Photoframe from eggshells

Obvious an Easter theme. Of course, at first, we are going to eat the boiled eggs. After this delicious meal, we are going to glue the eggshells on the cardboard. For the painting, we used silver spray paint.

Put a picture in the middle and on top a passe-partout from glitter paper.

And it’s better to let the kids spray outside (watch where the wind comes from)

Making your photo frames with children is fun of course, but sometimes you don’t get the results you expected, in that case, you can decide to buy one online.
