DIY PROJECTS: 3-DIMENSIONAL FROG CARD
Before making a craft project, your children may enjoy exploring a favourite craft store, looking for different diy projects that are easy crafts to make… or 5 minute crafts to do in the holidays.
They will especially love visiting arts and crafts stores such as Michael’s Crafts and Riots Arts and Crafts for new inspirations, as each craft store has many varied hand craft ideas to try.
Some of these hand craft and diy projects might be wood craft activities or perhaps crochet, finger-knitting or kite-making, all of which are a lot of fun for children trying new skills.
Here is a 3-D card project based on “Freddo Frog”, that uses colored foam adhesive sheets, available from the above craft outlets.
The History of “Freddo Frog”
Freddo Frog is 90 years of age this year. The Freddo frog candy bar was created in 1930 by Harry Melbourne, an employee of MacRobertson Chocolates Australia, when they were deciding on a new chocolate sweet. The FREDDO FROG CHOCOLATE CANDY BAR was a winner and has been enjoyed by everyone ever since.
