Paper plate Hello Kitty
Hello Kitty is one of the favorites of kids / children. Here is an easy way of doing hello kitty with a paper plate. Take a paper plate of desired size, even the colored paper plates will serve the purpose. Cut the whiskers at the notches of the plate as seen in the above picture. Leave some part at the bottom for the frock of the kitty and cut the upper circular part to make the face of the kitty. While cutting you can leave 2 projected parts for ears.
That's it. You can help your child to color the kitty now with its favorite colors. Your little ones are sure to enjoy making this cute Hello Kitty.
Usually, I do not dispose the card boards / card board boxes and use these for craft work. Making Christmas tree using a card board is too easy. You can make you kid draw the outline of X'mas tree on the card board and cut the it. Then you can paste green color or any desired color paper / velvet paper on it and cut the extra projecting color paper. Now you can attach small hand made stars, balls or any other such hand made items to decorative your tree using glue. You can also use glitter glue to decorate your tree. When you are done, you can fix an ice cream stick for making the stem. If you wish you can even fix this in a small vase or pot. Your kid will be too excited and feel proud on seeing such an X'mas tree made by him / her.
Decorative Diyas / lamps for Diwali
Give the used diyas / earthen lamps to your kids and let them design / decorate it in their own creative way. They can use the left over color paint to paint the diyas and then, use glitter glue, chips, kundans or mirrors for decorating the diyas. Do not discard the used candle wax, preferably colored candle wax, instead collect it and use it for filling the decorated diyas. You can place a wick as well so that you can get ready-to-use diyas made by your kids.
