Arts n Crafts Day: Sun-catcher Mobile

We were in Mr DIY two weeks ago when I spotted this sun-catcher painting set and pestered daddy to get it for me.


I chose this rainbow fish. I insisted on this simply because it was the most colourful one (there were other nicer and bigger pieces at the same price)

I painted the fish all by myself. There was a lot of paint left so mummy suggested painting the old faded ones as well...

After a fresh new coat of paint, the new and old ones looked just the same

Now, what shall we do with them? Mummy decided to make a decorative mobile by hanging them on a pair of chopsticks with some thread.

Tied together a pair of unused disposable chopsticks and carved a small slit at the ends to hold the thread in place

Done!

Now, where shall we hang this? We still couldn't find a proper place to hang this so it's now lying "dead" on the dining table hahaha!

I also told mummy "I want to keep this for my baby. Next time when I have a baby, I can hang this at the baby's cot".

  7. Hmmm, for Chloe's baby, that might have to wait for another 20 years. Why not Chloe ask mommy to give her baby sister or baby brother, that is faster.
