Crafts with Clare County Library

  • Workshop

Aishling of Clare County Library will show how to make some simple crafts in two videos. Aishling’s first video ‘Make a Gruffalo Puppet’ will show how to make the well-known book character. For this video, you will need a toilet roll, pritt stick, sellotape, some brown card (or you could use colour or white card), string/wool and a lollipop stick. You might need an adult’s help to cut out the pieces of your puppet.

Aishling’s next video shows how to make a theatre which you can use to tell stories about your Gruffalo character. For this video, you will need a cardboard box, white paper, a pipe cleaner or sellotape. You can use your imagination to decorate the theatre set and enjoy staging your own plays.  

Our third video is with Ellen who will make a flamingo greeting card. For this craft, you will need some paper (pink preferably or you can colour white paper with your colours), pritt stick, scissors, a ruler and a pencil.  

The videos for all crafts will be posted on Creative Ireland Clare Facebook page on 13th June for Cruinniú na nÓg.
