Say bye-bye to boredom and get started on one of these fun projects with the kids.
This shop is so much fun! It’s made from an old bookcase, cut in half and modified, with an MDF panel in between that has a window cut out of it. You can make loads of things to sell in your store – boxes of groceries, fresh flowers and lollipops, too. Once you’re set up, it’s time to open!
Fit for a fairy
Check out this clothes line for your fancy dress! It’s made from two timber balusters fixed to a plywood board with a curved top, painted the same colour as the wall. Add sisal rope with timber knobs to hang clothes, then it’s dress-up time! The rope is knotted at each end and feeds behind the timber balustrade through a groove cut in the back. Wall stickers add a finishing touch.
Here’s the sweetest idea for storing all your soft friends. It’s made up of four lengths of rope and four swing seats, each with a front and back rail to hold your pals in place. The rope is knotted at the bottom of each seat and tied around each rail. At the top, the rope is fed through holes drilled in a top plate, knotted to secure, then gathered together and knotted around a ceiling hook.
These bugs rock!
Ask Mum to help you make a family of pebble pets. Undercoat a smooth rock in Jo Sonja’s Gesso and finish in any colour acrylic paint you like. Decorate with stripes, dots and wings, then let them dry and hot-glue the googly eyes in position.
