It has been a long weekend here in Melbourne, and there has been a lot of kids craft being done.
Miss 5 has absolutely fallen in love with making bracelets from colourful rubber bands. Apparently it is the latest rage at school. And to my surprise our sons enjoyed making them too (as long as they didn’t have pink and purple in them !). The four kids have been wearing them all weekend, and the older three complained when I warned them that they can’t wear them to school tomorrow.
Is this a craze at your children’s school? I’d be especially interested to hear whether this is done in other countries at present. I can’t believe how many patterns you can make with rubber bands!!
The other craft activities that we discussed and tried out – are those for Easter. A few pictures our children found are:
The chickens made from the egg cartons, and painted. We plan the fill them with the tiny Easter eggs and give them to friends. We had three egg cartons from the recycle box, but it is safe to say our family might be eating a number of eggs prior to Easter to have enough carton chicks !! What kind of Easter craft traditions does your family practice… I’d love to hear them.
Have a great week…
