It's a well known fact that I suck at craft, so no doubt many of you will wake this morning to a craft tutorial from me and wondering if our recent house arrest was enough to let the kangaroos loose in my top paddock. Bear with me, I wrote a craft tutorial that no one follows.
The girls have been spending their fair share of time at the doctor lately. On our last visit our clever GP made the Little Sister an elephant from a surgical glove. It's an ingenious way to amuse a small person for a while.
how to make an elephant from a surgical glove
you will need:
a surgical glove (I used a clean one, but I'll totally leave that to your discretion)
a marker pen
Blow air into the opening of the glove. Twist the opening and tie like a ballon.
Take the pointer and middle fingers and tie them together to make the front legs. Do the same with the ring and pinky fingers of glove to make the back legs.
Using a marker, draw eyes and ears onto your pachyderm. Enjoy peace and quiet for three entire minutes.
I hope that you're not in the position to need to entertain your kids in any kind of medical institution any time soon. Ever even. In fact, I hope the only people who ever make a purple pachyderm from this tutorial are bored doctors and nurses looking to fill their time because all the medical centres are completely devoid of your children.
That's how truly crap at craft I am, I wrote a craft tutorial I hope no one uses. Awesome.
