They love dressing up, they love being creative, they love doing things themselves, they love performing and they love recycling. If this describes your children, then why not mix up all these great elements and do a newspaper fashion show with them to get them creating, making and using their imagination.
There are all sorts of items that the children can wear made from newspaper. Simply tape the pages of a newspaper together, cut out arm or head holes and away you go! Here are a few ideas.
- Top - tape together 2 pages end to end. Cut a head hole. Tape under the arms and its a top! Add some tassley sleeves (snip pieces of paper and stick on).
- Skirt - tape a few sheets together and wrap around the children's waist. Tape to existing clothing or tuck in. Snip out some square or triangle shapes along the bottom to make it look unusual.
- Hair bow - take a small strip of paper. Pinch together in the middle and pop under a clip or hair tie.
- Bow tie - pinch a strip of paper together and tape to a narrow strip that goes round the neck. Secure with tape and stick on the bow at the front!
- Walking stick - roll up a few sheets and secure to make a pretend walking stick.
- Princess hat - wrap a sheet round your hand to make a pointy hat. Tear some long strips of paper to make a flowing ribbons and stick to the top of the hat. Secure with tape.
