The making of "spider"

These few days I always saw many papers lying here and there after I back from work. Must be Wien's job again, she like to cut paper nowadays, be it newspaper, paper or flyer. But good thing is she never cut her book, if she want to cut, she'll ask for our permission. She can handle scissor well, but still unable to cut in good shape. I only worry she might hurt Lyon one day. So each time have to remind her to becareful when using scissor; also cannot run while holding scissor! Well, she taught me DIY spider last weekend. Funny hor, small kid teach an adult to do crafting! hehehe...she learn it from one of Barney show with Ma Ma's guide, as she always accompany her watching those series. ok, get ready a piece of used paper, scissor, color paper with sticker type (use this to do spider's eyes, mouth and nose...or use pen to draw also can lar) Here we goes.... Fold the paper into half; place the hand on it and drew it out. Draw at folded side, so can get 2 set of hands with join (hope this is clear, else pls refer the photo!) Then cut out the hand; see, 2 hands join together, isn't look like a spider? but spider only got 10 legs meh?? Little teacher : 等一下,要减掉 GOOD, 然后就变成八只脚啰!(Hang on, must cut out the GOOD! then become 8 legs only lor!)...so she place the hand on floor again, to find out which is the GOOD and cut it! She always call thumb as GOOD, as we always show thumb up when say something good! ok, now become 8 legs only! Later she cut the eyes, the nose & the mouth for the spider! ok, gao tim! but don't expect a small kid to cut pretty well hor! p/s: hope you guys understand what I wrote, share this with your kids, sure they'll have fun with it!
