We were given a challenge sheet from Family Craft Club for my daughter and me to try out. The sheet we were given was instructions on making 3D Beans on toast.
The first thing we had to do was buy everything we needed but as we have no shops that sell everything we needed in one place we had to go shopping online.
It did cost us around £20 for everything we needed but they will last a long time so it is more of a one off cost apart from small little bits we may need like paper plates that your Mum or Nan will probably have in their cupboard somewhere.
For the 3D beans project we needed;
1 paper plate
There is a lot of time where you will be waiting for things to dry so this is not a quick project.
My daughter wanted to paint the paper plate a light blue colour to start with so we mixed the paint and she started painting the plate while I cut the sponge to look like a piece of toast. I would recommend mum or dad cutting the sponge.
We waited for the paint to dry on the plate and glue the sponge “toast” to the plate.
Once the glue was dry on the sponge we mixed some paint, a brown colour for the toasts crust and a yellow/brown for the toast colour and painted the sponge.
The sponge took a long while to dry as it soaks the paint up before starting to dry. We left this for a few hours to dry.
Next we grabbed our orange tissue paper and started rolling small pieces into little balls and glued each one onto the toast and next to the toast on the plate.
When we had finished gluing the tissue paper or beans to the toast and plate we waiting for the glue to dry and then mixed up some glue with orange paint. It was time to add the finishing touches the bean juice!
My daughter poured the bean juice all over the beans once she had finished I could see he massively beaming smile on her face and she grabbed the plate and ran up to her dad and said “Do you like my beans on toast?”
She really enjoyed this project and list looking forward to lots more crafty things to make during the school holidays.
