WaSHi tApE Craft

Another great Saturday morning with our creative kids!
Today we made very cute birdhouses from milk cartons and decorated them with colourful Washi tape.
For this craft activity we need:
  • milk carton
  • washi tape and washi tape "look" tapes
  • scissors
  • double sided tape
  • oval/round shape for a door
  • paddle pop sticks
First, we assembled the milk carton and cut the shape for the birdhouse door.
The next step was to decorate the birdhouse with Washi tape and glue the paddle pop sticks for the roof.
We added the little paper clip on the top of the roof to use for hanging on the tree.
Ciao and keep crafting!:-)

Pencil holder

Hello, hello! It's been a very long time since my last post...Hmm... I am back now with lots and lots of crafting fun for kids and adults.
We started our Term 1 craft classes today and had a great morning painting and decorating Pencil holder made from paper rolls.

Here is a little tutorial for our craft activity:


  • paper rolls
  • wooden piece for a base
  • PVA glue and glue gun
  • acrylic paint
  • glitter
  • tissue paper
  • shells


  1.  Draw a line around roll and snip at even intervals. 
  2. Fold out the strips. Apply PVA glue (or use glue gun) inside the strips and glue all strips to the piece of wood (base). 
  3. Glue the scrunched tissue paper to the rolls and to the base. 
  4. Paint over with acrylic paint.
