We’re are planning a picnic with friends on Monday. Everything’s good, we’re thinking of things and picnic food to take and then Amy comes along and tells me that the picnic cutlery is boring. I guess she’s right. Pre-schoolers love bright colours, glitter and everything that causes sensory overkill, so when I presented her with the disposable wooden cutlery that came with our picnic hamper, she could only react in one way: underwhelmed!
Luckily, I had just cleared out one of my kitchen drawers in the morning and found some washi tape in rainbow colours and there it was – my solution: the world’s easiest washi tape craft or Amy’s rainbow picnic cutlery.
All you need is washi tape in a selection of colours (I think I picked the rainbow colours up for £4 for a pack of 10 on Ebay or Amazon), wooden disposable cutlery and maybe a pair of scissors.
I then just wrapped different colours of washi tape around the cutlery and played around with different designs. Nothing special, nothing that asks for any craft skills and I really mean any – I bet even my cat could do this. Amy is over the moon with her new pretty cutlery and I enjoyed having a little play.
What’s your favourite washi tape craft? If you have blogged about any, leave me a link below and I’ll pop over and have a look!
