You all know how much Peppa Pig fan Emmy is after our visit to Peppa Pig World and Peppa Pig Stage Show and even many of our crafts are Piggy themed, so it won’t surprise you that we also buy the Peppa Pig Magazines for Emmy.
More often than not she does some colouring in and uses the stickers and sometimes we read the story but then the magazine is put aside or thrown away. However now Emmy is almost two I have decided we will work our way through the magazines properly so when in issue No. 23 of the Peppa Pig Magazine I saw a guide on how to make Peppa bookends we just had to try. I will show you what we did.
What we used:
6 old CD cases
2 kitchen roll tubes
First I Cellotaped 3 CD cases together as shown in this picture:
Next Emmy and I paper mached over the cases using a mixture of half water and half PVA glue – this wasn’t necessary but we like to get messy, I wanted her involver with the craft and I knew if I wrapped it just in paper she would unwrap it in no time.
This took quite a while but Emmy does love getting messy, it was then left to dry overnight – it didn’t take that long to dry as we only added one layer of paper mache.
Our Peppa Pig Bookends were now finished – Emmy loves them and they have made a great play area for her other Peppa Pig figures, we now have Danny Dog, Pedro Pony and Rebecca Rabbit living in the Castle too. (and once we find Zoe Zebra she will live there too).
