WHAT YOU NEED

  • White scrap paper to practice
  • Yellow paper
  • Pencil
  • Paint markers, Uni-posca Paint Markers come out brilliantly even on coloured backgrounds
  • Scissors
  • Wooden kebab sticks
  • Masking tape
  • Paper glue stick, like my all time favorite Pritt Stick

HOW TO

  1. Choose your favorite Emoji and practice drawing it on scrap paper.
  2. Draw two circles on yellow paper. Cut them out using a scissors. Tip:  Achieve perfect circles by drawing around the base or top of a glass.
  3. Divide the facial features (eyes, smile, hearts, etc) of your emoji, and using a pencil draw some on one circle, and the rest on the other.Tip: Draw them as you want them to appear – for example; the left eye on the left of one circle, and the right eye on the right of the other circle. Tip: To ensure that all the features align correctly, once the first circle is done cover it with the second circle, and place them against the window. You should be able to see the features on the first and used them as a guide while drawing on the second.
  4. Now, go over the feature in marker and colour them in.
  5. Place a wooden kebab stick in the center of the back of one of the circles, point up.
  6. Stick it to the paper using masking tape. Tip: To keep the wooden stick secure place the tape along the length of the stick, and add an extra piece at the top to form a ‘T’ shape.
  7. Put paper glue on the back of the other circle, and stick it back to back with the first one, making sure that the features are aligned properly.
  8. Finally, twirl the stick by putting it between your palms and moving them back and forward, and see your Emoji appear before your eyes2016-05-29_21_45_44

Cool Frog Game & Craft

This is one of my favorite kid’s crafts so far this year, and as for the children…they LOVED it!  Not alone is this project great fun to make, and super cute to look at, but the kids just love the fun toy they are left with. The only drawback? They’ll be so obsessed with trying to get the fly into the frog’s mouth that you won’t be able to get them to tidy up ….  Have fun!

  • Large bead
  • String (80 cm approx)
  • Tape

  • Sissors
  • Green card
  • Glue
  • White paper

Method

  1. Paint the toilet-roll insert green on the outside & red on the inside, & leave to dry.
  2. One end of the toilet-roll insert will be the mouth of the frog, and the other will be his bottom!
  3. Now, tie the bead to one end of the string
  4. Drop the the other end of the string into the toilet-roll insert
  5. Using tape, stick the string to the inside of the toilet-roll insert, near  his “bottom”
  6. Staple the end for his bottom closed
