The Creation Station Christmas Countdown- Day 8

Hand Print Reefs

You will need:

  • Ribbon
  • Card (depending on what size you would like your reef depends on the amount of card you use. We advise 2-3 pieces)
  • Green Paint (different shades if desired)
  • Red Paint
  • Double sided sticky tape (or glue)

Step 1:

Paint your hand green! but be warned… this can tickle!

Once your hand is painted, make your hand prints on the card. (The more you can fit the better! You may need 2 pieces of card depending on how big you would like your reef.) Try using different shades of green on different hand prints.

Place to the side and allow to dry (this could take between 15- 30 minutes to dry).

 

Step 2:

With your 3rd piece of card (or second) cut it out into a large circle, and cut out a center like so:

Step 3:

Once your hand prints have dried cut them out individually.

Then begin to over lap them on top of the green circle using your double sided sticky tape (or glue). This should already begin to look like a reef!

 

Step 4:

Now to add the final touches!

With your red paint get a small amount on your finger and print three dots in the shape of a triangle. You can do this several times around your reef.

Now for the last part!

Get your ribbon (or string) and tape it (or glue it) to the back of your reef either in the shape of a loop or in the shape of a bow.

Hang it up and you have a beautiful creative handmade reef!

Stained Glass Window

Make your own stained glass windows using simple materials. You will need:

  • Black card or paper
  • Tissue paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • pencil

Step 1 Draw your design on black paper. Cut it out and then cut out the inside of the shape to create an outline image. An adult may need to help with this part as it can be complicated. holly      holly2

Step 2 Turn your image onto it’s back and spread glue along the edge on the black paper. Using the collage materials you have gathered, start placing them over the image, aiming to cover all the space inside the picture. It doesn’t matter if it overlaps over the edge as you can cut this off later.

Step 3 Once you have finished decorating. Turn the window over and cut around the edge to remove the bits over hanging. holl5

Step 4 Mount your stained glass on a window and watch all the magical colours and patterns it throws into the room.

Don’t forget this can be any design of your choosing!

You could make:

  • Santaholly6
  • Tree
  • Snowman
  • Elf
  • Stocking
  • Presents

The ideas are endless!
