Get the kids involved in the October holidays and get crafting today!


Here is a list of materials you will need:

Tissue paper

Skewer sticks – with a blunt end


Twine or ribbon

Black pen

Tin foil


Gather your materials and let’s get started…

Firstly, scrunch up a ball of tin foil and using the pointed end of the skewer stick, insert into the ball. You can secure this with sellotape or blu tack if you wish, but it should hold on it’s own.

Now, place the ball with the stick into the centre of a piece of tissue paper and fold over the top. Then, holding the ball, scrunch the tissue paper around the sides.
