Get their creativity going

Try the awesome activities to keep them busy and get their creativity going.

Marble magnets
If you read a lot of magazines, marble magnets are a great way to make further use of them before tossing them in the recycling bin.

You will need:
* Clear flat-bottomed glass marbles, available at most craft and garden stores
* Small round magnets.
* Clear silicone glue.
* Scissors.
* Pen or pencil.
* Old magazines, old books, scrapbook paper.

What to do:
Select a picture or pattern. Place a marble over the image to make sure you like the effect.
Holding the marble to the paper with one hand, trace around completely with the other hand. Make sure you don’t lose your marble after tracing, because no two marbles are exactly alike.
Cut out the image, cutting slightly inside your trace. This will ensure that the paper fits under the marble with no messy edges.
Apply a small drop of silicone glue to a round magnet. Quickly place the cut-out image on top and press down gently; making sure it’s centred on the magnet. Allow to dry for a few minutes.
Put another drop of silicone glue on top of the paper, then place the marble on top and press firmly. The glue will spread out to the edges, eliminating any glue bubbles.
If the paper seems loose at the edges of the magnet, carefully press it upwards against the magnet to make sure it sticks.

Toilet roll owls
This is a great and inexpensive activity for kids of all ages and the materials needed can easily be found around the house.

owls (Medium)

You will need:
* Cardboard tubes. If you don’t have the toilet paper size, cut up a paper towel tube.
* Paint and brushes.
* Glue.
* Googly eyes.
* Fabric or paper scraps for wings and beaks.

What to do:
First thing is to paint your cardboard tubes.
Now you have to wait for them to dry. This is a good time to cut out triangles for beaks and petal shapes for wings.
Once the tubes are dry, place your thumb along the top edge of the tube, and bend it in on both sides. This is to make the pointy owl ears.
Now glue on the googly eyes, wings and beak.
