Butterfly on a toilet roll – an early recycling lesson

Materials and tools needed:

  • Recycled toilet paper rolls
  • Colored paper
  • Acrylic paint (in a variety of colors)
  • Colorful pom poms
  • Pipe cleaners (optional)
  • Wiggly eyes
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Washi tape
  • Indelible

Step by step realization:

1. Repaint the toilet paper roll one color or a combination of various colors. Let dry well!

2. Close the layer daily in share and draw a half heart extending to the fold.

3. Cut along the contours of the heart but without cutting along the fold. Decorate your butterfly’s “wings” however you like – sequins, pom poms, ribbons, and other small decorations.

4. Now, assemble your butterfly. Cut the pipe cleaner in four and glue two pieces as antennae inside the toilet paper tube. Next, glue the movable eyes to the front and have the wings attached behind. For a final touch, draw a mouth using the indelible and cool drawing ideas.

A DIY flower pot with artificial plants to decorate for spring

Materials and tools needed:

  • The following template
  • Plasticine in various colors
  • Crepe paper
  • Toothpick
  • Plastic or paper straws
  • Indelible
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Flower pot (cup)
  • Chickpeas

Step by step realization:

1. Print and cut the flower petals in the crepe paper. To do this, cut a strip of crepe paper, fold it a few times, and finally cut out your petals. For an even more exciting look, you might consider cutting petals into various shapes, sizes, and colors.

2. Now, cut the toothpicks into three pieces. Wrap the crepe paper petals around the top of the toothpick while securing them in place using glue. Let dry well!

3. Form balls of two types (small and large) in the plasticine and then press them to flatten the giant balls.

4. Place the small balls in the center of the large flattened balls and draw a mouth and eyes using the indelible—Pierce the toothpick balls so that the small plasticine figures surround themselves with pretty colored petals.

5. The straw, on the other hand, will become the stem for your flower. Plant it in the pot and cover it with chickpeas to the top so that it can stand up straight. For more stability, you could also think of putting a little plasticine on the bottom to fix the straw it.

And there you have it, a cute little decoration that could be used for decorative purposes or be offered to mom to celebrate the arrival of spring or why not on the occasion of Mother’s Day.

A spring wreath in the shape and colors of the rainbow

Spring crafts and creative manual activities

Materials and tools needed:

  • Simple moss wreath
  • Large sharp knife
  • Pen
  • Matching ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Sticker dots
  • White cardstock

Step by step realization:

1. Using a large knife with a reasonably sharp saw, cut your moss crown in half.

2. Then, use the pen to mark 5 lines spaced at equal intervals on your half-crown. Thus, you will have five sections that you will later decorate with ribbons of various colors.

3. Choose the first color of ribbon and attach its end to the end of the half-crown using glue. Start wrapping this one around, making sure to stretch it tight and that the entire section is evenly covered with tape.

4. Proceed like this continuously. Finally, you reach the mark where the first section ends. Take your last turn and glue the end of the ribbon back. Cut off the excess ribbon!

5. Then, take another ribbon color and fix the end of it on the half-crown by overlapping it with the previous ribbon. Start winding just like in the last step until you reach the mark finishing the second section. Do the same on the integrity of the foam half-crown!

6. To adorn the two ends of the resulting rainbow, cut out two clouds of white paper. You could do this by hand, finding a template online, or using a relatively large cloud hole punch. The two clouds you are going to attach using glue on the two opposite ends of the rainbow.
