Make a wish for the new year! These New Years Even Spin Drums were inspired by these wishing wands by Cathy at Nurture Store for Babycentre. We’ve been doing a lot of crafts with contact paper so when I saw these star spin drums I thought they would be perfect for an adapted activity. We’ve been working on letters with my daughter and spelling with my son so I wove little lessons into this activity too.
Gather your materials. You will need some craft spin drums ( ours came from here) , paint, letter and star stickers and glitter glue .
Next think of a wish for 2014 and spell it out. I was suggesting things like “Love” “Peace” etc… my kids chose ” car” and “nerf”. These are their wishing drums not mine so I didn’t interfere. We did do this a few days before Christmas and their minds were on toys not world peace! Again I helped my daughter by spelling the word and letting her find the letters on the sheet of stickers and let my son do it solo.
