It is time for the start of school so I thought I would share a fun learning craft the Construction Paper Flags Kids Craft. You can make a specific flag and learn about that nation or culture. Once the child understands the meaning of the parts of a flag they can create there own flag and explain why they choose the specific design elements for their flag. We used scotch tape for our flag because my little helper just LOVES Scotch tape but your can use your favorite kid safe glue.

How to Make 3D Paper Stars is a simple but fun project you can do alone or make with the kids.

This weeks Kids Craft is How to make a Paper Crown. The paper crown looks complicated but it isn’t. My 6-year-old assistant made her crown all by herself. I showed her how to fold the pieces on my crown and she made the folds for her own. After the first few folds she had the order memorized. I, of course, want to attribute her folding skills to her being a genius and having my genetics (she is my niece) but really it is that simple to make. Continue reading

Mini Mailbox Paper Craft from H&P Artistry

Mini Mailbox Paper Craft

I was going to leave the Mini Mail Box tutorial video up on YouTube but decided to post the dimensions here for those of you that like written instructions.

Materials:

1 – 8.5″ x 11″ Coloring sheet

Ruler

Scissors

Glue

Double sided tape or Velcro tabs

Stapler (for the looped handle)

Cut your coloring sheet in to:

4″ x 3″ Base

8″ x 4″ Top

3.5″ x 3.5″ Front and back covers

4″ x .5″ Handle

Use the rest of the paper for the inside of the hinged cover or to make mini mail.

Instructions:

You follow the same basic instructions as the larger boxes only you fold your 6″ sides on the top in 1/4″. Put the glue on the 1/4″ tabs and paste it to the bottom of the base.

I like the base pattern side up so that the pattern is viewable when you open the mail box.

Fold the back and front cover pieces 1/4″ and glue the tabs to the underside of the base.

Option 1. To cap the back you can cut wedges in each corner and fold the paper over the top edges. Glue the tabs in place.

Option 2. You can also trace and cut the curve of the top and add 1/4″  around the edges. Cut notches in the curve and paste each tab to secure the back.

The Video below will walk you through the process step by step. Remember to take your time and hold your glue in place until it sets before moving to the next step.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.
