This week, in honor of Tolkien Reading Day, which was March 25th, my SURF Club girls designed hobbit doors.
For this craft I supplied:
- cake boards (these were donated to me, but they can be found in hobby stores in the baking section)
- construction paper
- glue sticks
- embellishments, such as buttons, sequins, die cuts, etc. (optional)
When I craft with my girls, I give them a theme and the supplies and maybe an instruction or idea, but otherwise I let them freely create as their hearts desire. Of course, I do have to put a limit on the embellishments because some of my cute girls would use up all my craft supplies in one go if I let them!
For this craft, most of my girls started by coloring the white side of their cake boards with markers. After that, some cut construction paper to look like bricks, stones, and the doorknob.
I just have to show off my daughter’s hobbit doors. She decorated each side of her cake board.
♥ Are you ready for April? We’ve had a lot of rain and snow showers here in Utah lately. I’m hoping there are some drier days next week so I can get outside and weed my flower beds. My crocuses are popping out of the ground and I’m excited for blossoms to appear on my trees. ♥
