(re)capturing the fun & wonder

Hark the {paper and pom-pom} angels!


Tor (4) asked to make a paper project with cones like I’d used for the advent calendar the other day and this is what we came up with: simple angels with pom-pom heads. Tor did all the cutting, taping assembly himself. I just wrapped the cone shape for him.

How to:

  • Wrap regular paper (or fancy if you’ve got it) into a cone shape and have your child tape it securely
  • Cut the bottom of your cone to make a level surface
  • Cut out paper wings by placing two sheets of paper one over the other & making a basically oblong shape to make your two wings
  • Tape your wings to the angel’s back
  • Fold the wings lengthwise so they stay perky
  • Poke a toothpick into your pom-pom & slide it into the top opening of your cone
  • Voila!
