"Look how big that toadstool is! Is that someone's home?" That was where our conversation about gnomes started and our craft was born ;-) In this post I will show you how a child can easily make a toadstool himself.
Prepare paint supplies and the materials shown below.
Let your child paint the cardboard cup and the paper plate, while you cut some circles from the cottons. When your child has finished painting, let him put the cotton rounds on the roof of the toadstool. Do this while the paint is still wet, because then it will stick well.
When the paint is dry, you can pierce a hole in the middle of the roof (plate) and the stem (the cup) with a wooden skewer. Attach the parts to each other with a paper fastener and your toadstool is ready for his new gnome resident. If your kid doesn't have a wooden gnome to play with, check this tutorial to make one of a paper roll.
