It has been a rough week in our home. I had gall bladder surgery this week & have been sore & very tired. After several days of lying around on the couch, I am just plain bored. I mustered up just enough energy today to make a quick craft. Mai wanted to make seahorses. Mommy wanted to make them out of cupcake liners, but Mai decided she rather draw hers.
She did not want to partake in today’s craft with mommy, but still we worked side by side. She drew a beautiful picture, while I made the seahorse craft. Sometimes she likes to just watch & it helps give her ideas for future projects of her own.
This was luckily a quick & easy craft that only took me a few minutes & then I was back on the couch resting.
All you will need for this craft is mini cupcake liners, glue & googly eyes.
You will need 4 mini cupcake liners for each seahorse.
Fold & glue a cupcake liner in half for the body.
Fold & glue another liner & trim the ridged part away from the inside of the liner. This liner will be used to form the tail.
Use the leftover inside piece to form the curl of the tail.
Fold another in half & trim to form a seahorse head.
Fold a liner into half twice to form the fin & glue all pieces in place as shown.
Add a googly eye to finish him off. Use crayons or markers to add water waves or bubbles.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.
Aw, I hope you are feeling better and sending good vibes your way for this weekend now 😉
Thank you, Janine. I am slow going, but getting better every day.
Ooh, sorry to hear about the gall bladder surgery. I had it a number of years ago, and it was not really a good time. Possibly I wouldn’t have minded so much if the surgeon hadn’t fibbed and told me I’d feel well enough to go back to work after two days. I hope you have a speedy recovery!
Oh my! I could not imagine having to go back after 2 days. I am 5 days in and still very sore. Ugh! You are a trooper.
No! I didn’t actually go back! I just lay in bed for a week and cursed the doc because he’d lied! Oh, and cursed the hospital because I came out of there with a staph infection. Thank goodness we have a different doctor/hospital now.
Oh my goodness! That’s good. I was wondering how you did it, You got a staph infection. Yikes! That sucks. I can’t wait to feel normal again. My poor daughter is so confused. She just wants mama to pick her up, but of course I can’t. 🙁 Booooo Hopefully this surgery heals what ails me & I am back to normal soon.
This is so adorable! Thanks for sharing this cute idea with us at the Merry Monday link party. I hope to see you again next week. Sharing your post on Twitter!
