AGE GROUP: 6+ (with adult assistance)
TIME REQUIRED: 10-15 minutes
DESCRIPTION: Perfect for Christmas decorations or if you want a lightweight “ball” for indoor play that won’t damage the wall!
SPACE CONSIDERATIONS: A table/workspace large enough to do the craft.
MATERIALS REQUIRED: Per ornament:
1. Draw your template on your sheet of paper and cut your three strips as perfectly as you can.
2. Trace (don’t cut!) along the curves with a pointy knife (Fig. 5). Glue the bottom of two of your strips (Fig 6) and make two loops (Fig. 7).2. Put one of your loops into the second (Fig 8). Get your third strip and put it through one of your closed loops (Fig 9). Close this third strip with glue and press until its dry (Fig. 10).
3. Next couple of steps are a little tricky so take your time. Wiggle all the loops until are the curves face outwards (Fig. 11). Gently press the curved (traced) sections inwards one by one (Fig. 12). Your ornament is finished (Fig. 13).
