Magic Wands

3 May

IMG_0858 IMG_0859Here we have 5 magic wands. We made these from Amy Karol’s workshop on Creative Bug. It took 3 weeks, or something crazy, to complete. A week of gathering materials, on my part. A day of making the newspaper wand form, with magical incantations included. Roughly soon after, we did the fun part of papier maché gluing which went fairly well, as we did it outside. The 3 year-old boy we watch was so busy collecting bugs, I made his wand form for him. It was probably a week later that we painted the wands. Sue and I covered them with a Mod Podge finish later that night. We were on vacation for a week, and when we got back, we finally finished the wands with jewels, feathers, and ribbons.  The kids were great about doing the project in parts. They didn’t lose interest, or bug me about finishing them up. From left to right here, we have the All-Purpose Magic Wand, the Non-Whapping Wand (for the 17-month old boy), the Super Sweet wand (yes, that would be my mom wand), the Frozen Wand, and the Cinderella Wand. Time to start making some magic!
