Questions about crafts:

Why do you enjoy crafts so much?

Because being creative is fun.

What do you normally make?

I make anything that I think of.

What occasions do you most like making things for (e.g. birthdays, Christmas etc.)?

I make things for all occasions, just whenever I feel like it.

How do you come up with the ideas?

I get my ideas from the different things that I see. I see things at school or at friends' houses and then try and make them myself.

What is your favourite craft material (e.g. paper, foam rubber)?

I like to make things from paper. I can make lots of things with paper: houses, a maze, a garage as well as cards or a gift for my mum.

Tell us about the favourite thing you've ever made and why you like it so much!

We made our own pirate telescopes at a friend's birthday party. Some of us made them by sticking an empty kitchen roll and two empty toilet rolls together.

Then we stuck kitchen foil all around the outside. Afterwards we used a special hole punch to make different patterns with multi-coloured paper.

Then we stuck them on the kitchen foil and make the telescopes look nicer.

Afterwards we made a hole in each side and tied a string through them so that we could hang the telescopes round our necks when we weren't using them.

Do you have a photo of you with your favourite craft piece?

No, sorry I don't. There are some photos of the birthday party, but none of the telescopes that we made.
