Whilst browsing for something for my own little ballerina to do whilst stuck in lockdown, I stumbled across a fantastic webpage – Popsicle Stick Ballerinas!
It’s another great craft idea that’s easy to do, makes little mess and again, you and your ballerina can do this from the comfort and security of your home.
This is a fantastic screen free activity for our preschoolers and older children alike. Have fun and remember, you can use anything that you can find at home!
what you will need:
- Popsicle (paddlepop) sticks
- Pipe cleaners
- Cupcake liners
- Coloured textas and pens
- Coloured paper (to make a hair bow for your ballerina)
- Optional – glitter, stickers, rhinestones, glitter glue (to make your ballerina unique, just like you)
2. Repeat for each ballerina you are making.
3. Next, take your textas and pens and draw a face, hair and of course, don’t forget their ballet shoes!!!
4. Using coloured paper, cut out a cute hair bow and glue this to your ballerina.
5. Wrap and bend the pipe cleaner around the popsicle stick a few times to make your ballerina’s arms.
6. Now it’s time to make your ballerina pretty and sparkly, just like you! Use your stickers, glitter and rhinestones to make it your own.
