Maggy mentioned her watery theme for this month’s Get Crafty, of course I thought sailing! We miss it so much and can’t wait until we get the opportunity to return to the sea – mad as it is!
I bought my lovely girl this book for Christmas
and she has delighted in producing folded paper goods at every opportunity ever since!
When she appeared with an elegant origami yacht my crafting gene kicked in. It was lovely, I wanted more!
‘But Mummy, there’s no more paper! We’ll have to make some!’
We grinned at each other! Time to get out one of our very favourite things!
She marbled some paper using just green and blue for a watery effect, adding just a few drops and swirling them around a bit
We let the paper dry and then she did her folding thing! The book’s pictures are probably easier to follow than ours but you get the idea.
This book is packed with projects, graded according to difficulty and comes with 61 pieces of paper to get you started. She loves it (I sort of hoped it would be one of those that got forgotten and I could have a go!)
