Craft of the Week : awesome Autumn Activity

Nature is generous with us in the autumn months : leaves turning to beautiful reds, yellows and oranges in autumn.
But April is generally a rainy month for Sydney and surrounds, which means lots of crafts and activities for kids!

Little Frenchy picks out awesome activities to keep your little one busy during rainy days.

Forest Friends Headband

  • What You'll Need ?

    Fresh leaves
    Brown paper bag (8″ x 13.5″)
    Black and white markers
    Double-sided tape

  • Steps

    Cut the paper bag in three strips (3-4″ x 28″) and fit it to the size of your child’s head. For younger children, cut the band open and glue the folds together for a better fit.  Add the tape on the upper third.
    To integrate leaves into the animal headbands, prepare headbands like above and add some tape for the ears. Draw some simple animal faces, just eyes and noses. Head outside and search for two leaves with the right shape. What works for a rabbit, eagle, owl, or a bear?

Forest Friends Mask

  • What You'll Need ?

    Black and white markers
    Brown paper bag
    Elastic cord
    Sewing needle
    Glue stick
    Mask to use as a template
  • Steps

    The mask should be 4″ x 8″ with the eye-holes between 1″ and 1.5″. I have an old children’s birthday mask that I always use for a template.
    Cut the paper in three 4″ x 8″ pieces and draw the mask. Cut out the eye-holes and glue some small paper on the back, where you punch the holes with a needle. Measure the cord, then cut and knot to the mask.
