Feeling all hot and craving for ice-cream? Try this 'ice-cream' that won't melt! Of course it won't melt, it is made of card board and paper plates. :D
Paint a paper plate red and another yellow. You may paint it any colour as you wish and you may paint as many plates you like. Each colour will represent a scoop on your cone!
Just the middle part will do. Once dried, cut out a 'cloud' shape from each colour to form the 'ice-cream'
Get a recycle box to make the 'cone'. Draw a cone shape and line it with markers or colour pencil.
Once all is done, paste them all together. I added some glitters on the top of my ice-cream as 'toppings'!
Stick it onto a wall or anywhere as you wish. This ice-cream will never melt! :D

Fingerprint Bees

What to do on a bored rainy day? Get your water paint out and let's start finger printing!
First I let him do some 'practise' on a piece of paper.
Upon reaching the 'pro' level, I let him do the finger printing on a new piece of paper! :D
There! After the paint has dried up, I help him draw some stripes and wings and his finger prints are now Buzzing Busy Bees!

Origami Koala

I love Koalas. They are just so cute. Here is a simple way to make your very own Origami Koala.
You'll need a square paper.
Fold it in half.
Fold one end down to the bottom.
Followed by the other.
Fold a flap up.
And another flap for the ears.
Flap it back down a little bit to make it blunt.
Repeat on the other.
Fold down the upper part of the head.
Fold up one side of the lower part of the face.
And the other.
Turn it over and decorate it as you wish.

You need to paint the back of one paper plate yellow.
And another paper plate black.
* Cut four stripes of black craft foam and paste onto the yellow paper plate.
* Cut the black paper plate into half and paste it at the back of the yellow plate as wings.
* Use pipe cleaner as the antennae and sting.
* Use googly eyes or stone as the eyes and you're done!

Father's Day Card

Father's Day is around the corner. I've made this card for my Darling, for being the #1 Dad to my precious Ethan. I'll make another for my Dad too, for being the #1 Grandpa to Ethan and the #1 Dad to ME!
I use blue craft foam.
Fold both ends so that they meet in the middle.
Push down the top corner to make the 'collar'. Glue it down.
Draw some lines and cut a line through the pocket to insert a note.
I printed Darling's name and a note to slip into the pocket. Peek-a-boo at what's inside.
Peek again...
Tah-dah! My precious Darlings!

If you are a crafter, it is important to know how to get certain shapes right. Here I would like to share how to fold and cut the perfect star.
Fold once.
Fold again.
Fold the corner to the line in the middle.
Fold the tip down.
Fold vertically.
Cut along the line. Open and you get yourself a beautiful star!
