Princess Nagger is always up to something crafty. I love that she has no fear when it comes to making fun (and sometimes funky) creations. I love seeing what she comes up with next, though I have to be sure I have a never-ending supply of paper, tape, and glue on hand at all times.
Hopefully in our next house I’ll have room for a Craft Room to keep all the pertinent products on hand conveniently – and especially so I can keep an eye on what’s getting low, since Princess Nagger forgets to tell me if she’s used something up. Maybe I need to make sure she has her own Craft Room, too.
When I asked her what she’d like to create utilizing the Elmer’s Naturals we’d received for review, she didn’t miss a beat when she replied “Minecraft paper craft, of course!” So I printed out the specific ones she requested so she could get busy.
She had to cut out each piece, then put them together like a puzzle. Patience whilst creating is thankfully a trait I passed on to her. I mean, look at these:
And here’s another one:
And of course you can’t have Minecraft characters without the Minecraft chest – specifically one that opens:
After the pages of pixel pictures were printed (that’s a tongue-twister!) Princess Nagger feverishly got to work. I was going to take pictures of her in action, but I underestimated her determination to complete her new project in a timely manner. Behold, her completed creations:
Along with the two Minecraft characters and chest, she made a Creeper Bed, and two block heads (forgive me for not knowing what/who they are, she’s not around at the moment to ask).
She was a little impatient waiting for the glue to dry, thus the reason for the tape to hold them in place until the glue does dry. They’re so small – I had to show the comparison between them and the glue stick for reference.
Princess Nagger has a challenge for you to figure out who these two characters are:
She accidentally sat on the second dude’s head – but is sure those that know these characters will know exactly who they are. If you guess correctly, you won’t win anything – except her undying admiration.
I must say I’m very impressed with Elmer’s Naturals Glue – it works exactly as their regular school glue, except that I don’t have to worry when the kids use it and get it on their hands (and ultimately in their mouths, especially Little Dude) because it’s non-toxic.
You’ll notice that the glue is a little different in color from the regular Elmer’s School Glue:
It goes on clear and dries clear. Elmer’s® School Glue Naturals™ is the first and only school glue made with naturally occurring ingredients (corn and soybeans) and available in recycled packaging. Even the label on the package is printed with Soy inks, and there’s no harsh smell, either – I love that I don’t have to worry about that part, either.
I’m loving Elmer’s School Glue Naturals, and love that it’s better for the environment. I highly recommend it to any crafty aficionado’s out there – and even for the non-crafty people who use glue for any reason.
Do you or your kids like to be crafty? Do you know who those two Minecraft dudes are?
