Xobon Magazine is a bimonthly publication that encourages creative expression and imaginative play. It features creative work by children from around the world. These include, but are not limited to, artwork, handmade craft, stories or poetry, even an innovative science project. A regular section,”Creative Big Kid,” features creative adults and the work they do, to inspire our young readers. Another regular section in the magazine is the Global Intelligence Network (GIN) where we allow children to indulge their sense of curiosity by playing at being detectives. Here, our Lead Spy teaches kids how to encipher and decipher secret codes using the Cipher Disk, among other activities in a espionage-related theme.

You can find us on pages 8-13.

Children Art: Omnomnom

NOM NOM NOM!

The kiddos cooked up a storm in April! We imagined up landscapes, whipped up fluffy ice creams and imagined our foods in different colours inspired by Andy Warhol!

We did plenty more delicious art, hop over to AAH’s Facebook to see more!

Halloween Craft: Eyeball Pompom Garland

done

Bringing forward Sunday DIY to Friday, because Halloween is tomorrow! This will also be our last Halloween craft for 2015, can’t wait to start on the Christmas crafts!

I think it has became a known fact that over at AAH, we cutiefy anything and everything whether we mean it or not. *smirk* But I guarantee you today’s DIY is meant to be cute, I mean – how can pompoms ever be not cute?

Doll up your house with these adorable eyeball pompoms, and while you’re at it, pop out those pipe cleaners and googly eyes to make a couple of pumpkins and spiders!

We came across this amazing pompom making method a couple of years ago, and have been making ours the same way since then! We’re by no means experts on it so do hop over to their website to check out a more detailed tutorial!

Well then, let’s get started shall we?

material
You’ll need
Thick Cards
Scissors
Coloured Yarns
4 Binder Clips
Embroidery Needle

1-2
ONE Cut 4 U-shapes out of the cardboard, make 2 of it extra thick in the center. A regular one and one with a thick center makes a set (the thick center is sandwiched between the two U-shapes).
TWO A Wrap a few rounds of white yarn slightly off the center of your pompom maker – this is the twinkle in the eyeball.
TWO B Wrap your colour of choice for the pupil, making sure to cover the white fully.
TWO C Wrap your colour of choice for the iris, making sure to cover the pupil fully.
TWO D Wrap white for the rest of your eye ball. Using just white, start wrapping around the other pompom maker, making it as thick as your first one.

3
THREE A Fold the ends of each pompom maker outwards and clip both pompom makers together.
THREE B Insert your scissors between the pompom maker and start chomping away at the yarn. You’ll have a extremely fluffy ball of yarn after you are done with both sides.
THREE C Cut yarn long enough to wrap around the pompom. Make sure you tie them as tightly as possible to prevent them from falling apart. Remove the clips and cardboards.

4-5
FOUR Make more! I made plain orange and black ones too!
FIVE Using the biggest needle you can find, start threading your pompoms together, spacing them a few inches apart.

And you’re done!

I hope you had fun trying out our Halloween crafts the last couple of weeks! Art101 will be back next month, so be sure to still check back weekly for more DIYs and lessons!

This is a tribute from art@home to Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Do not go gentle into that good night
Dylan Thomas, 1914 – 1953

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
