What is in the Craft basket?
- Newspaper (to spread down while working)
- Newspaper sheets cut to a4 size
- lid (to draw circles)
- Paper punch (optional)
- Hole punch
Let the kids paint the newspaper sheets. If you have painted paper from previous art work,you can use them too.
Let the paper dry
If you are using paper punches, cut out circles. If you do not have paper punches, no issues. Draw circles on the painted paper using the lid and cut them out using scissors
Fold each circle in the middle.
You would need 3 circles to make an ornament. Apply glue along the crease you made by folding them in half and glue two circles together. Now glue the third circle as well.
Add some beads to the string and thread the string through the center of the ornament. Make a big knot at the bottom of the ornament
Your ornament is now ready!
