- Sophie &Friends
Today we begin a series of craft projects created out of materials generally found in the home. With Halloween right around the corner we start this new series of Paper Crafts with this fabulous Crawling Paper Spider. This creepy creature not only makes for great Halloween decor but also moves! Check out more of Sophie's Halloween Crafts and Paper Crafts for more stay at home Halloween fun.
Sophie continues her series of videos called Drawing with Sophie. In these virtual classes, Sophie shows you how to use easy-to-draw lines and shapes to create fabulous drawings of animals, objects and more. In this video she takes the technique one step further and demonstrates how to use lines and shapes to create your own piece of fine art - a Personal Picasso.These are great for young learners or those who simply want to improve their drawing skills.Watch Sophie's weekly Story Time sessions here:
