(re)capturing the fun & wonder

Paper plate corsage

You might have noticed Maggie’s lovely corsage in yesterday’s post about rain makers. The boys also got a chance to make their own lovelies. Super simple to do, and I’d never have thought of it myself, so once again I’m thrilled to live near an art center that does such amazing outreach for families in the community.

Here’s how to make your own:

  • Punch two holes a couple inches apart in the center of a small paper plate.
  • Thread one pipe cleaner through.
  • Decorate however you like (the ones shown here are just glue and craft paper).
  • Attach to wrist.

I think it would be fun to toss in some colorful tissue paper, glitter glue, gems, buttons, beads… whatever you’ve got hiding in the craft box.
