I love Friday afternoons. My little man is free from school and we get some one on one time. A couple of weeks ago I had the realisation that I was wasting these special moments with food shopping, ironing and the like when what I really wanted to do was play with my son. So I have made a decision to put aside Friday afternoon for fun! Here is what we got up to making Juice box monsters from Trash 2 Treasure.
|I bought the kit from a budget shop for less than 3 euros so in all truth wasn't expecting too much but the materials were really good quality. Instructions were also provided in different languages.|
|The box contained 3 separate packs to make the 3 monsters. |
A good idea as the little man had had enough after making two so we saved one for another day.
|He wanted to start with the green and orange monster.|
|The contents of the pack.|
The materials were good quality, the paper was thick.
I liked how they included the double sided sticky tape.
|The little man was happy to get started sticking glue on the box.|
|We had a problem getting the pom poms to stick on the pipe cleaners |
and ended up wrapping the pipe cleaners around them.
|The little man needed patience to get the pieces to stick with the glue.|
The double sided sticky tape worked much better but was too fiddly for little fingers.
|The finished product looked great and the little man was happy with it too.|
|Monster number 2 for the big lad. This one was fiddly as it had lots of spots to stick on |
and it was difficult to peel off the backing paper. He did get a little bored at this point.
|With a little help from mummy he did it!|
|Celebrating with Monster faces.|
