Model Magic Craft: Tiny Tea Cups

 

Having fun creating miniature tea cups and some "game pieces" out of Model Magic. 

The teacups are tiny pinch pots. I demonstrated how to make one then helped Lu make her own.
We decorated them with tiny stamps. 

Before we made the teacups, I showed Lu how to roll the MM in her hands to make little balls. Then I showed her how to take a stamp and squish the ball into a coin shape. Well she loved this and made about 20 coins. She made up a game that I am still confused as to the exact directions.

Fun I thought the second I saw the "coins" that ER would love making those. They would be a timely project with St. Patty's day and all.

This looks very fun! I love how kids Lu's age can make up games with very elaborate rules that only they can remember.

I have photos up now from lantern-making. By the way, with the older kids, I gave them sheets of white paper with textured orange and black paper they had to rip up. It gave the latern a thicker look and made them think more about the pattern they wanted.
