Make a newspaper wig 3

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  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.
