- 4 plain lolly sticks (you can buy them or just keep the sticks from your kiddies ice lollies. Washed of course!)
- Glitter (in bowls with a spoon)
Okay, so why have I got a paper plate and some greaseproof paper/baking parchment in the picture? I find that greaseproof paper is fantastic for using with glitter as it slides of more easily than cartridge paper or newspaper. I’m also a fan of using paper plates when we’re making. They’re like my disposable art trays although they can often be reused to make things with as later.
1. Spread glue over one of your lolly sticks. I often have to help remove some of the generous helpings of glue that the girls put on!
2. Put the lolly stick carefully on the greaseproof paper and cover with glitter.
3. Use the spoon to flip the lolly stick over and pat down into the glitter to get a good covering.
4. Carefully pick up the lolly stick stick and put it somewhere safe to dry. Repeat the proccess with the other lolly sticks.
5. Take two lolly sticks and make a train track. Put a blob of glue at the end of each train track and glue the other two lolly sticks on top to make a square. Please excuse the colour change in the chaos of doing both girls I didn’t take a complete set of pics.
6. Glue ribon on the back and there you have it. Sparkly frames!
