Spring is here! It’s time to replace our winter wreath to the new season piece. ( if you don’t remember our handmade winter wreath, check out our the post here 🙂 )
Ryker// Messy Art: spring wreath
- IKEA colorful straws
- Craft stems
- Kid Scissor
- Wreath ring
The goal of the craft activity is to train my boss’s fine motor skills. He practiced to cut the straws with the scissor, and then put the pieces of the straws through the stems. He loved to use the scissor and was so concentrated to cut it as small as possible. He also enjoyed watching the straws flying everywhere during cutting. The floor and table were covered with color; it felt like spring and made us so happy.
Then we started putting the pieces of the straws through the stems and twisted the stems to make them look like flowers. He had fun to arrange different color through the stems and twisted the stems to different shapes. I finished the rest of flowers and put them onto the wreath ring.
I am very pleased with the look of the wreath, and glad my boss had fun to make it and also trained his fine motor skills. Two birds, one stone! Yeah~ 🙂
