Inspired by fabulous children’s book Oliver and the Seawigs by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre. So this post is an entry into the #Tots100Seawigs competition in association with jabberworks.co.uk. we decided to make our own newspaper wig, which is our seawig.
We started by blowing up a balloon and sticking strips of torn newspaper to it, which was sticky and messy fun. But we made a fatal mistake………….. Once we popped the balloon our wig’s headpiece shrunk, making it impossible to get on our heads!
We also had a go at curling the newspaper, but kept ripping it instead!
But, we had a really fun hour making it and would love an illustrated family portrait. So fingers crossed.
