Want a way to get your kids’ creative juices flowing? We made a cute paper napkin paper mache bowl that my daughter uses to store her little toys. While paper mache isn’t my favorite craft to complete, just because of the time it takes to dry in between layers, this was still a fun project for my daughter.
We sped things up with a blow dryer and she thought that was tons of fun.
We gathered all of the supplies we needed as outlined in Make in a Day Crafts for Kids
- Printed paper napkin
- Paint brush
- Clear wrap
We separated the layers of the printed napkin and used the white layers to build the bowl shape. A bowl was covered with clear wrap and the paper mache layers were added on top.
My daughter was eager to get started.
She then worked diligently to add numerous layers of paper mache and we used the hair dryer to dry them in between. We didn’t cut the edges off like the book since my daughter wanted the outside of the bowl to be the pink color too.
You can see the other crafty projects from the book. I like that the instructions were clear with tons of images. My daughter had the book out as she was creating her bowl.
All the projects were easy to do and if you had the supplies lying around they would be easy to put together. There are a few more projects we’d like to try like the dream weavers that look so colorful.
This book is perfect for parents who are not so crafty and need the step by step instructions and images, AKA, me, I’m their target reader.
