We have been doing quite a bit about Africa at the moment and one of images that has sparked my daughters interest is that of some of the equisite necklaces and jewellery.
They are so bright and colourful so naturally we had to have our own go at making some. Unfortunately most of our art supplies are out of reach at the moment (our floor saga continues) so we had to be extra creative with what we had.
We started off with some paper plates. We cut out the center circle of the paper plate. Try and cut it so that you can re-use the center bit.
We started off by colouring in the paper plate and the inner circle as well. We used a combination of our oil pastels and some water-colour pencils for this but paint would also be great.
We then used our punch to make holes in the bottom of one of the necklaces and in the glued strips. We attached the strips to the necklace with some string
My daughter loves them.
