Footprint Ghost Bookmark

Need a bookmark? Try making your very own footprint ghost bookmark. All you need are foam craft and googly eyes.
The ghost is best done on white craft foam. I did not have any white craft foam at the time of doing this, so I settled with yellow foam instead. Trace the outline of your foot onto the foam. Cut it out. Paste the googly eyes and decorate it.
Cut a small slit slightly below the mouth.
Your footprint ghost bookmark is done!
Quick and easy!

Handprint Fly

Feel like making a fly today.
You'll need a black craft foam, a laminating sheet, pipe cleaner, some yarn, stones for the eyes and glue.
Trace your handprint on the laminating sheet.
Cut two circles of slightly different sizes and a small oval and paste them onto a piece of paper to form the abdomen of the fly.
Spread glue onto the laminating sheet and scatter some yarn all over it.
Sorry for the picture does not really show the 'wings' properly. Anyway, here is the handprint fly.

Freaky Hair Smiley

Ethan loves anything smiley! Everything belonging to him will have a smiley sticker on it. I've decided to make his smiley a little bit freaky and happening! ^^
First, draw a circle on a piece of paper. Draw a smiley face on the circle.
Then put a drop of water paint on the top of the smiley head and blow it to form hair. Keep on doing it with different colours all over the head.
Your smiley will look something like this. Cut a circle out of a yellow paper and paste it onto your smiley here. Optional, I cut a 'sunglass' out of black craft foam to make my freaky smiley looks cool!
There you are. The freaky hair smiley!

Origami Boat (3D)

Remember back in our ol' school days we used to fold this boat? I was reminded of this boat by my students. Let's see how she fold this boat.
Fold an a4 paper into half.
Fold the sides to the middle line.
Both sides.
Fold the four corners up to the middle.
And again for all four corners.
Like this.
Fold a small flip at both sides.
The trickiest part is to turn the boat inside out. Once you got that mastered, you'll get your origami boat!
The kids and their boat. Unfortunately, there was no boat for Ethan that day. But he is still happy though! ^^
