My regular readers may remember that I’ve been holding weekly craft sessions this summer for as many as 19 girls, ranging in age from 4 to 17, in my little girl craft club- which finally has a name: the SURF club. The girls voted on names this past week and SURF won. SURF stands for Sweet, Unique, artistic/aRtsy Friends and ties in with the beach theme of my craft room, which is now called Camie’s Crafting Cove. 🙂
This was such a fun kid craft! I got the idea from an early Christmas display at Hobby Lobby. What’s with lollipops and Christmas? I have to say I don’t get the connection. But this was a delightful summer craft for my girls.
For this craft I pulled together the following supplies-
- round cake boards (I chose the 8″ boards that come in a pack from Hobby Lobby’s baking section)
- 12″ dowels (these came in a pack from Walmart’s craft section)
- scrapbook paper
- craft punches
- glitter glue, glue sticks, clear Elmer’s glue
- adhesive gemstones (Walmart has these in sheets)
- scrap ribbon, craft string, yarn
- buttons, tiny craft pom poms, sequins (whatever you already have on hand)
- duct tape (to attach the dowel to the back of the lolly)
First the girls decorated the white side of their cake boards using a combination of the materials that appealed to them. Some also decorated their dowel with string or the adhesive gems (which came in long strips) and most added a bow just below the lolly.
♥ Which is your favorite? This was one of our last craft sessions for the summer as public school begins here on August 22nd. Marcus and I will start our homeschool year August 30th which is the first day of his online classes. Do you have any fun end-of-summer plans? I’d love to hear about them. Thanks for stopping by. ♥
