1. Trim around 2 of the patty cases (one should be smaller than the other) so you end up with 3 different sizes.

2. Colour the paddle pop stick with green texter.

3. Cut around a leaf from the template (use one or two).

4. Insert a picture of mum or the child (about a 20 cent piece size), or a coloured piece of paper with a message, into the milk bottle lid.

5. Assemble with craft glue as per the picture below.

    That’s an incredibly cute craft! I might have to get the boys to make some for their teachers and grandmas.

      BAHA! Absolutely. I thought of that too. When I wrote this post, I actualy worded the first line carefully -> “easy craft to do with kids” rather than “your kids” for this very reason. hehe.
