Hi everyone! It's Bridget here. Spring has sprung and its time to get into the garden.
School holidays are approaching here in Australia, so I wanted to share with you a craft that will help encourage your children to get out there and enjoy nature.
Gardening teaches our children many things including responsibility, they learn they have to take care of the plants so they survive. (lets see if they do)
So here is a craft that encourages that and also incorporates my daughters love of unicorns.
What you need:
A pot (I got these from kmart)
Foam (I used foamtastic from Riot)
Flowers (Kmart and D-lish scrapbooking)
A pot plant (my girls choose their own at flower power)
Helmars Foam Glue
Helmars Premium Craft Glue
Helmars 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
First step on the back of the foam draw your ear and unicorn horn shapes, then cut them out.
Next using Helmars foam glue, glue the pink (inner ear) onto the white and let dry.
To attach the unicorn ears and horn to the pot we used Helmars 450 quick dry glue.
We drew some eyes on with a Sharpie, and using Helmar's Pemium Craft Glue, attached lots of flowers and jewels.
After letting that dry, all that was needed to do was to pop a plant in. My girls love their unicorn pot plants and hopefully they will take some responsibility in looking after it.
I had a great time creating with my girls and shopping for some pretty plants. I hope you give it a go these school holidays. Until next time Happy Crafting.
