Today is a crafty kind of day, and we have a load of craft materials that we never know what to do with. So a quick don of the thinking cap, and some googly eyes...repeat after me: EVERYTHING LOOKS BETTER WITH GOOGLY EYES.
And we have come up with some pretty cool Lollipop Stick Alien Wall Decorations.
You will need:
Lollipop Sticks (lots - once you make one, you'll be making more!)
Any other craft Material and your imagination. We had feathers and felt tip pens.
First, lay out the lollipop sticks on a flat surface, side by side. Glue two lollipop sticks and stick them across the back of the others, like so:
Now it's time to decorate!
As you can see, Ethan enjoyed penning a nose onto his alien! Hee hee!
- Choice and Decision Making - he chose the colours and what we used for the face and hair
- Fine motor skills (glueing small bits)
- Patience (waiting for glue to dry)
- Storytelling (there was a whole massive story accompanying our aliens!)
- Sense of achievement
- Mum time
Why not a have a go with your wee ones? Don't just stick with aliens or feathers - why not try scarecrows with paper hats, dried macaroni for hair or ribbon for a tongue?
