3. Handprint trinket dish
Children’s tiny palm prints are special and precious to parents. A quirky way to preserve the size of their palms is to make a trinket dish using a mould of their palms. The whole family can make a set using airdry clay too! Get the tutorial here.
4. Egg carton flowers
Egg carton flowers are simple and beautiful. It’s also suitable for kids younger than 5 years old to do. Adults are much pickier about perfection but as long as the kids paint some streaks on the egg carton, it’s all good. Once dried, attach the egg carton to a patterned straw or stick to make the flower stem!
5. Papier mache bowl
Another way to make a bowl to hold jewellery is through papier mache. Kids love papier mache because they get to tear papers into small pieces which also works their fine motor skills and thus strengthen finger muscles. They also get to play with glue (kind of). Show them how to cover a bowl or the bottom half of a balloon with the sticky papers and let it dry.
