What can you do with old tins/ can? We love repurposing items into crafts. For this craft we used some tins, felt, tree branches, tacky glue, cotton balls and made some beautiful trees. Goodbye Winter and a cheery hello to Spring. Thanks to Miss Ellen for making these trees with the children.If you are operating a daycare like us, you may need to schedule time between craft as each child may take a little longer with gluing, especially if they have sensory challenges. It did take time and effort to wrap the tins, glue the cotton balls and do the inserts. This craft was done over the course of several days, and then we waited for what was hopefully the LAST snowfall of the season.
You will need – rainbow colored felts, empty tins, twigs..small branches, wood glue or tacky glue, circular foam for insert and dollar store cotton ballsInsert the stick in the through the circular foam disc, then start gluing the cotton balls unto the branches. The inserted stick will need to be glued with wood glue or tacky glue at the area of the foam disc, wood glue worked best and held the stick in place. Place tacky glue on felt and wrap the tin.Keep repeating the process for the rainbow color. You may opt to wrap the tins first, before inserting stick in foam or before adding cotton balls to twig..whichever way is more comfortable to you. After that, you can attach some birds or owls to the craft. With a little creativity, cotton balls and twig this craft is looking so beautiful. I love the outcome. These little birdies were purchased at the dollar store. The owl was left over from a previous project and the tins …many of us have some of these in our cupboards.
Groundhog said lots more weeks to Spring but we are all hoping it was wrong. Enjoy making this beautiful craft with our little ones – Miss Sue:)
