DIY Crafts

We expect to have more relaxing days after the exam was over, albeit they still brought back homework and their tuition is still on. Meaning, they still have Ting Xie, Ejaan and Spelling every week. There were 3 weeks to go before the long school break is here, and that time they can totally have a break from tuition and homework.

We managed to catch up with some simple craft on the evening April came back from her last day of exams.
In fact, I was so lazy to do my own designing and cutting. I just bought them a few ready packed crafts from MR. DIY.  The price of these ready packed crafts ranges from only RM1.90 to RM2.50. Cheap and nice right?
April and May were so anxious to get all crafts done in that evening. They both have done with the sticking of tiaras, and then they proceeded to do the sewing of handbags.
DIY tiara is easier to do than DIY handbag. They just needed to glue different shapes in different colours to decorate the tiara. Whereas DIY handbags required some simple sewing skill. I helped them with the sewing of the handle to the bag.
On the next day, they pestered me to buy more ready packed crafts from MR.DIY.  This time they made a moo moo photo frame, a rabbit pencil holder and a frog pencil holder.
 
I find these crafts are rather useful, cute and lovely. It is good to be made by kids, and present to teachers on Teacher's Day. April and May have decided to give the pencil holder and photo frame to their ex-nannies.

  13. Yannie you are such a good mama! They will grow up smart and innovative minded like me...Ahem!!! My mother encouraged me to draw birthday cards for my father's so many brothers and sisters when I was 4-5 years old! I improved along the years and my parents think that I am the smartest amongst my siblings.....not academically wise but overall in making decisions and planning.

  14. I like all the creative crafts available today for the kids. Unlike our time, we had to use left over papers, buttons, leaves and anything my grandma threw away to make crafts. I remembered cooking my own starch as glue to make paper plates. Later years, I even made Kueh Talam as it is same ingredients as the starch!! Just add sugar, coconut and pandan essence! Boleh makan!

      She asked me to try eating the "glue" but I reluctant! Luckily I wasn't that stupid to eat it, I know my mom was trying to trick me ;)
