Fun and Easy Crafts for Kids

Happy Monday. No papercraft today, but I do have a couple things to show you that we worked on yesterday. The only thing I did was assist with the glue gun. (And burnt myself while doing it LOL.) 

My daughter's class is doing a "Secret Santa" gift exchange in her class, where they are to make something handmade, like draw a picture or a little craft. She already wanted to make the mickey mouse ornament before so that was her first thought, but then this cute snowman craft showed up in my twitter feed yesterday and then she wanted to make that one too :-)
 

This one was so easy to make. All we needed was this. 
She used a sharpie marker (not pictured) to draw the eyes.

And here is the cute snowman all finished. She wanted it to be an ornament so she tied some gold cord to the pipe cleaner. 
 This is where we got the idea from: Crafts by Amanda.


The second ornament is a cute "Mickey Mouse". Forgot to take a photo of the products before she started, but this is what she used:
plastic red ornament
2 styrofoam balls
black acrylic paint and brush
masking tape
buttons
hot glue gun 


She found this tutorial on youtube by LDshadowlady, there are idea for other Disney characters too :-)

Here there are both hanging on a tree for now.




Hope you liked these cute non-papercrafting ideas! I will be back again on Wednesday with a special project for our 12 Days of Christmas Event at Whimsy Stamps.
