Last Friday was National Winnie the Pooh Day (January 18th) so the girls in my SURF Club (Sweet, Unique, aRtsy Friends) made honey pot bracelets and Hundred Acre Wood dioramas.
I borrowed the idea for the bracelets from my Sister’s suitcase (so I won’t post instructions here, but I will say that we added pony beads and chose a different kind of beading cord which was less stretchy, but much easier to knot).
I also thought it would be fun for the girls to create a diorama of the Hundred Acre Woods.
For this craft I gathered the following supplies:
- Food boxes (these are the ones you carry your hotdog or nachos in from the gas station; I got them in bulk from Hobby Lobby)
- Clip art from Disneyclips.com, which I resized to a smaller scale to fit the boxes
- Colored paper
- Glue sticks, craft glue, and scotch tape
- Cotton balls (for clouds)
- String or craft thread (optional; for hanging clouds)
- Hole punch (optional; one way to hang the clouds)
One group of girls came up with the idea to have me cut slits (I used a craft knife) across the bottom of their boxes. Then they attached popsicle sticks (one girl asked for a pencil so I gave her a dowel) to their Winnie the Pooh characters and now they have a little play scene. I thought this was a very clever idea.
Two moms provided the snacks and they took the theme to heart. I think some of these ideas came from Pinterest. There were Hundred Acre Wood acorns (or haycorns as Piglet calls them) made of Hershey Kisses and mini cookies (frosted together), Bit o Honey candy, Tigger tails (Cheetos), and baby carrots from Rabbit’s garden. One of the girls made cute little signs out of popsicle sticks.
Another mom provided cornbread with honey and berry smoothies. Yum!
♥ Did you celebrate Winnie the Pooh day? Of course, any day is a good day for Winnie the Pooh. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend. ♥
