1. Bottle Jellyfish
What you need: Soda bottle, ribbons, sharp knife, hole puncher and paint.
How – Cut the bottom of the bottle and sand it off to get rid of sharp edges. Make 5 to 6 holes along the edge. Paint the outer surface with yellow or the color of your choice, draw eyes and leave it to dry for some time. Loop colorful ribbons and tie them inside the bottle and you are ready to go. You can also wear it as a hat.
2. Paper Plate Swan
What you need – White paper plates, scissors, paint, glue and bird feathers.
How – Start by cutting from the edge of the plate, go up all the way till you reach the textured surface of the plate. Follow the line and cut until the beginning. About a little above the cut give the textured surface the shape of the beak and head. Paint the beak in red or orange. Paste the feathers on the belly and your swan is ready to swim.
3. Ice Cream Stick Farm Animals
What you need – Ice cream sticks, paint, craft paper, googly eyes, buttons and glue.
How – Paint the sticks according to the color of the animals and leave it to dry. While the paint is drying, pick up the craft paper and cut them according to the shapes of ears, nose, eyes and hen feathers. Color them accordingly. Stick each ice cream stick with the respective set of nose, ears and eyes. You may also use googly eyes. You can’t stop being playful after you have finished making the bunch of farm animals.
4. Paper Cup Wind Chime
What you need – Paper cup, colorful buttons, plastic stars and small ornamental balls.
How – This is the most simplest yet prettiest wind chime you can ever make. Take the ribbons and make a knot in one end. Loop stars, buttons and the ornamental balls and repeat the process till you have obtained five to six inches of beaded thread. Make four to five such beaded threads and tie the loose ends in the paper cup holes that you have made along the rim. Make another hole on the bottom of the cup and insert a thread, make a knot inside the cup and you are ready to hang it wherever you want to.
5. Pumpkin Seed Tree
What you need – A handful of pumpkin seeds, glue, pencil and white art paper.
How – Draw the outline of a tree on the art paper and keep it aside. Divide the pumpkin seeds in two parts. Color some with orange and some with green. Do not color the other half of the seeds as they naturally resemble the color of the tree bark. Smear glue inside the outline of the tree, place the uncolored seeds first starting from the bottom of the bark moving upward to the mid of the tree. Then start with the green colored seeds, add a layer and then start with adding two layers of orange colored seeds. Frame it and hand it on the wall of your kid’s room.
