We recently did this project at home. A had had enough of crayons and coloring and drawing. She wanted to do some craft and I wanted to give my daughter something challenging but something that she is able to do herself without much intervention from me. So, we took out stuff already present in our craft box and she loved making these.This activity is suitable for 4-6 years old. If your child is not comfortable using the safety scissors, you can ask her to tear the paper or even cut them into patches yourself and then leave her to to do patchwork.
Last month was my daughter’s first competition in her school. It was a fancy dress and she stood first. The theme given to her class was ‘FRUITS’. We had an option of renting costumes from a store. But I wanted to do something creative and easy at the same time.
Children have their whims every now and then and my daughter asked for a Dora camera few days back (Dora is her favourite obviously). Now, I am a big believer in DIYing toys rather than buying store-bought toys at the drop of a hat. I did this before, when I made her microphone which is still one of her favorites. This time we made the camera using thermocol from packing stuff.
