Make a fabulous magical wand! February 18, 2016 16:45
We had such fun making this wand from themakearcade. The kit is designed for 14+ but would be suitable for younger children (we're guessing 8+) with adult assistance. Having made the wand ourselves, we think a child of 3+ could even get involved - from choosing which colour felt to cut the star from to choosing which buttons and trimmings to decorate the wand in...and they could even help with the sticking!
There's lots of ribbons and buttons available in the kit so there's an abundance of options for the decoration of the wand. The kit comes with everything you need - apart from scissors. Along with the felt, buttons and trimmings, it comes with a handy tube of glue, a needle and cotton to sew with.
The kit is £6.95 and is made by themakearcade. We love a bit of craft so this kit is going to be one of our favourites!
This activity can take anything from 1 hour to 3 hours to complete...as themakearcade say, a sewing project is never complete without a cup of tea (milk for the kids?) and cake so why not have a fun afternoon making this wand and indulging in some sweet treats! Save a slice for us!
