Food colour painted flowers

I had to share these as they looked so beautifu!
Food Colour painted flowers. The only instruction was to
extend the flower as close to the edge of the page as possible and this was what they came up with.
Sharpie marker texta's were used for the outline.

Foam sheet or paper Dinosaur with movable parts and button toes.

Materials required:


1.  Cut out all the pieces as per pattern and punch holes as per pattern.

2.  Match up all the holes and work out where you will put the spikes on the back

3.  Glue down the spikes.  Glue down the extra button where the eye will go and then glue on the googly eye.

4.  Glue on the buttons for toenails.

5.  Where the holes line up put in the split pins.  (mine were a little long but worked ok).

6.  My kids were happy for them to be plain but you could easily use sequins for scales etc to add another dimension. 

The boys loved doing the dinosaur roar!!!!

Mothers day cards with fake flower petals and patty pans

Mothers day 2011

Pulled apart fake flowers with patty pan centres and glitter added. Icy Pole stick used for stems and leaves were from pulled apart fake flowers.

Another version of description above. Recycled using cut up old box. This enabled the cards to stand on their own.

Slightly different centres. Some foam flower shapes. A stickers, paper letters and hearts.

Photo's are always a great thing to add to any card. So personal.

My daughter finished hers off by writing a greeting inside.  Beautiful job guys. xx
