Crafting Saturday Showcase – 5 Great Ideas

I have had such fun reading blogs with crafts for kids and looking at Pinterest.

Here are some of the most fascinating I have found this month:

1. Puppets with heads from Paper Mache:

Molly Moo – A great blog with lots of ideas for crafts. I loved the paper mache puppet heads. You can find all the instructions at No Sew Easter Crafts.

 2. Polystyrene Peanuts:

The next idea is so amazing. Never thought about it. But those little popcorn stuffings that come for packaging. Wow –

A beautiful painting. Or a train? Or a forest? Creativity abounds. Find it a Arteaschuola.

3. Origami Art for Children

I always loved paper folding. I remember a neighbour making a bunny for me with paper; and a 5 dollar bill into a ring (I still have that).

Here is a great explanation how to do simple folding and make excellent designs.
