A fun activity to do with your child, or older children could give it a go by themselves.
Take random metal objects, and turn them into little critters / owls for outdoor or indoor wall decorations.
Lots of fun to get the younger kids to help decide on what to use to make up their critters.
We scoured a few op shops for our critter creations, and came up with two owls, using a metal hot plate as one body, the lid of a biscuit box for the other, CDs, buttons, tea spoons (for noses), desert forks (for feet), metal bangles (for eyes and bent for ears).
You can be as experimental as you like, no need to make owls, perhaps have a go at butterflies, fish, frogs?
: 30 minutes to 1 hour (plus drying time)
:5-10's (will need supervision), Over 10's
Whilst our owl critters could be hung on an indoor wall, I think they look effective as outdoor ornaments on the fence.
