Kids crafts survival guide: New Year wishing wands - clear plastic panels
I tried it five times, but I finally got it: choose an expert who is old enough to handle sticky paper, an expert who is young enough to handle sticky paper
About The Flash
If your toddler thinks the sun is rising and falling, you will get extra points.
Nothing goes wrong.
Unless you have a kitten, too.
But first, meet our panel in our last holiday production project: Celestina Garcia, 14, and Kasandra Garcia, 10, right hand
Jillian Juhl, a 3-year-old Wrangler, chose a champion (me) to perform this more complex craft.
The 12-week-old Poff is a calico fiendThere, and in our temporary craft studio there are cookies on the table, as well as plenty of supplies, boxes, glitter and sequins.
There's one thing we didn't think about telling our panel: Kitty.
That's why we won in the emotional battle between the kitten and the sequins.
But we will eventually bring Kasandra back.
Of all the art we do during our school break, this is the first art with very clear instructions.
Take pictures and explain every step.
It doesn't mean everything goes well and you won't be surprised to hear the news.
I'm not used to the direction, on a couple of false cut paths, at one or two sticky bends that we just recovered, I'm leading Celeste away.
I lost the good scissors. we found a small knit scissors near the coffee machine.
We pass them back and forth like we make the Holy Grail, and when Kasandra doesn't want to cut his own stars, we don't argue, and since then we just have to share with her, too.
I tried six for the first time.
4 points for the star.
I tried it again and it turned out to be eight.
Another adult in the House sighed and gave me instructions loudly, look! a six-pointed star.
When we added transparent MACtac that could hold the flash, we failed again.
Although our initial instinct was to track and then cut, we were more fortunate to peel the sticky paper, press the cut on it, and then cut around the building paper.
Because we have a small pair of scissors, so the shift is natural.
We have very few painful scores-
Laughter and jingle of the girljingle-
A kitten who is playing.
When we needed our partners to come back to their chairs, pouff began to run out of steam: The sequins came out.
Talk about a mixed package
I don't know where these things are collected, but we have trees, dreams, Hearts and Bones.
Almost every traditional festival is in our small plastic box.
Celeste carefully selected each of her sequels until her star told a story.
Kasandra is not that precise, but there is a reason for each choice, there are some ideas, and firmly on her stars in a specific pattern.
Jilly stuffed as many shiny things as possible into her little space and piled up some more.
Then throw them away, pile them up, giggling like a crazy creature, creating a series of sequels around her.
Her star was half the size of someone else, and she decorated it four or five times before the older girl decided on the pattern.
She then took a little sticky plastic and stuck more sequins on it.
She posted sequins in many places.
I may find them one day.
The kitten dozed in these efforts and was ready to play again --
As Celeste, the young girl lost to us and I cut the clearer plastic and sealed it in our glittering arrangement.
Ah, if hope is a kitten, the possibility is endless.
I mean, first of all, we're talking about the wand of hope, and second, these things can be personalized in a variety of ways.
Use craft foam for more robust projects and get themed paper scraps on any occasion.
Use a punch to turn them into hanging decorations.
Let your imagination
Let your children use their imagination. run wild.
There are flash things all over the place and obviously you don't want them to go away.
Commitment of time and money: 1 hour, $5-$10.
