More Half Term Crafting

As the week progressed and the weather deteriorated, I had to find more interesting things to do round the house.  So out came the box of crafty bits and the TV!  We watched an episode of Mister Maker (one of our favourite shows) which was followed by an extra Halloween make, and of course inspiratiion was found.  Halloween themed pencil pots.

I knew keeping toilet roll tubes would come in useful at some stage!  These were minute makes for Mister Maker, but for a four year old they take a little longer.  Above was the first attempt, a ghost.  We had to make do with paper as we didn’t have much fun foam, but I think the second attempt of a bat worked quite well.

All made with bits and bobs from around the house and a lovely gift for Dad or Grandad’s desk.  We may try Santa and a snowman for Christmas.

Happy Crafting
