  • 1. Holiday Crafts
    • Activities To Keep Little Hands Busy
  • 2. Activity 1: Bee For Bookmark
  • 3.
    • Materials Needed:
    • 1 yellow pompom (medium-sized)
    • 1 black pipecleaner
    • 1 piece of white foam sheet or felt (wings)
    • 1 piece of red felt or construction paper (mouth)
    • 1 pair of plastic eyes
    • 1 craft stick (tongue depressor)
    • Glue (craft glue)
    • Paint
  • 4.
    • Steps
    • Coil the black pipecleaner around the yellow pompom twice, creating the striped body of a bee.
    • Twist the two ends of the pipecleaner to secure it, then cut off the excess.
    • Cut two wings (teardrop shape) from the white foam sheet (or felt).
    • Cut a mouth (crescent shape) from the red felt or construction paper.
    • 5. Apply 1 or 2 coats of white paint onto the craft stick (tongue depressor) before painting it green with white flowers (or any other designs you prefer).
    • 6. Glue the wings, plastic eyes and mouth onto the bee’s body while waiting for the craft stick to dry completely.
  • 5.
    • Finally, glue the bee onto one end of the painted craft stick.
    • Alternatives
    • Do not cut off the excess pipecleaner (Step 2), instead, coil the excess and sit it at the tip of a pencil.
    • Tips
    • When you use craft glue or white PVC glue (non-toxic), you have to press and hold the pompom down onto the craft stick longer.
    • Paint a coat of PVC glue over the painted craft stick so that the paint will not run and it looks great.
    • Ask for the tongue depressors used on yourself or your children whenever you see your family doctor (they are thrown away anyway) if you do not wish to buy a packet.

  • 6. Activity 2: Beautiful Butterfly
  • 7.
    • Materials Needed
    • 1 brown pipecleaner
    • 2 sheets of self adhesive paper (approx. 20cm x 20cm)
    • 2 plastic eyes
    • some glitter dust (any colour)
    • some scotch tape
    • Glue
    • assorted paper scraps (tissue paper, construction paper, or any bits of paper etc)
  • 8. Steps
    • Measure and cut out two pieces of self adhesive paper (approx. 20cm x 20cm).
    • Peel the protective sheet off from one piece and tape the corners down with some scotch tape (with sticky side facing up).
    • Let your child stick the paper scraps on the self adhesive paper and sprinkle glitter dust over any spare areas.
  • 9.
    • Take the other piece of self adhesive paper, peel off the protective sheet and paste it over the finished product.
    • Bend the pipecleaner in the middle into half so that it becomes a narrow ‘U’.
    • Next, gather the 2 pieces of self adhesive paper (already stuck together) in the middle with your fingers and sit it in the ‘valley’ of the pipe cleaner.
    Steps con’t ...
  • 10.
    • Then twist the pipe cleaner to secure the self adhesive paper in position and fold the tips of each end.
    • Cross and bend the two ends to create more contact space for the plastic eyes.
    • Tips
    • Overlap the tissue paper scraps slightly to see how new colours are formed.
    • Put the glitter dust in salt or pepper shakers so that your little ones cannot pour the entire bottle of glitter dust over.

    • Draw outline for younger children so that they can print within a designated area.
    • Let children practise on rough paper before starting.
