Show mini-makers the power of upcycling and turn an old book into a colourful Christmas table centrepiece with this project! This project involves lots of fine motor skill, making it a great activity to complete together.
You will need
• PILOT Pintor paint markers
• An old paperback book
• Westcott Antimicrobial scissors
Step by Step
Find the approximate halfway point in the book.
Widely open the book at this point and bend it back on itself a few times to crease the spine.
A small corner of the page will now be overhanging the bottom of the book.
Crease it along the bottom edge of the book. This will make a small triangle that you can tuck inside the original fold to give you a straight edge along the bottom.
PILOT Pintor Paint Markers make crafting super easy. There’s no need for extra brushes, pots of water and washing up – just grab your favourite colour, give it a shake and get painting! There are 30 colours to choose from, including metallics, neon and pastels!
