We are always looking for ways to re-use objects that we might have. We wanted to take these styrofoam balls that we were given and turn them into something festive for Fall. Materials Styrofoam balls Crepe or tissue paper Floral wire (ours is wrapped) Pencil Wire cutters Pliers Craft glue Green ribbon (optional) Scissors Toothpick Directions Cut your crepe or tissue paper into squares. Put a bit of glue into the centre of the paper and then fold in the edges, gluing them down at the bottom. We used a glue gun, but craft glue would work. With a glue gun, be aware that your type of glue gun may melt the styrofoam! Have an adult cut a small piece of floral wire. Twist it around a pencil to make a curvy stem. Stretch it out a bit, should you like, using your pliers. Poke it into the top of your pumpkin. Add a little piece of ribbon for leaves if you like. Insert a toothpick in the bottom and top your cake with it! Purpose Developing fine motor skills lends to muscle development and hand eye coordination for activities such as writing, cutting etc. Safety Notes Use scissors with care and adult supervision.
