Turn an old kid’s sock into a Barbie mermaid tail without ever picking up a needle and thread.
My daughter just received her first Barbie for her birthday, as well as an Elsa and Anna doll. She loves playing with them, but hates that they only have one outfit. I told her that when I was a little girl, I used to make my own Barbie clothes out of socks, so of course she wanted to do this. While sliding one of her dolls into a tube sock to show her, she told me that it looked like a Barbie mermaid tail. Light bulb! We found our first project.
My daughter loves crafts that allow her to play with glue. We have bottles of glue in our house & she just loves getting her paws on them whenever she gets a chance. Tonight I thought we could make little bunny bottoms. It would give her a chance to use some glue & play with fluffy cotton, which I thought she would love.
What you will need:
Glue cotton balls all around the bowl.
After you have covered the bowl, add extra cotton to the middle to form the bunny tail.
Cut out two ovals for the foot paws.
Cut out a pink oval & 3 circles for each foot & then glue them into place to form the bunny paws.
Cut out ears & glue them under the bowl in place.
Glue the feet into place & let dry.
To be honest, Mai did not take to this craft. When I told her that we were making bunny bums, she laughed. She grabbed her bowl & grabbed her glue. She added one cotton ball to the middle of the bowl & said “I done, mama.” That looks great too, baby.
