On Saturday morning Ri woke me up shouting, ‘crafting time, Mama. Wake up. Let’s check Pinterest. 😀
After negotiating with him and buying time for breakfast, we sat searching Pinterest. He said he wanted to make a space ship and I came across this lovely one from A Spoonful of Ideas. (She is one talented crafter. Do check her other posts.)
We made minor modifications and had our own lovely rocket to play with.
And here is how we make it.
- Toilet roll
- Printed paper
- Two sided origami paper
Start off with a toilet roll and wrap a pretty printed paper around it.
Cut a circle out of one of the origami papers (Be sure the circle is at least twice the size of the toilet roll in diameter.) and then cut it at the radius to roll it into a cone as shown in the picture above. Stick the cone in place.
Now add some glue to one side of the roll and stick the cone to it.
Next, take two different colour sheets of paper and cut out strips in both.
Stick the two sheets together
Now add some glue to the inside of the open end of the roll and stick the streamed paper around it.
Decorate it with stickers and glitter and you own an awesome spaceship to whooosh away with.
Ri was super happy with it and I cuddled up with a book occasionally glancing at him run around with the spaceship.
Happy Mama ❤
