Craft Idea: Toddler-Friendly Flaming Torch

July's Bostik Blogger craft box has a sport theme and with the Olympics approaching next month we have all been feeling motivated to get more active and into more sports. I took up running about 3 months ago, and both of the boys do swimming and football every week. I'd love to do more sports and activities but time is not on my side so running is all I can do for now! With our box of crafts we have been inspired by the Olympics and decided to make a toddler-friendly flaming torch. If you want to see last month's animal themed craft idea you can find it here.


My craft ideas are always really simple as I want them to be easy enough for toddlers and preschoolers to do, and this flaming torch is definitely the easiest one we've ever done! I could probably do it in a minute if I did it on my own, but with Little N's assistance it took us more like five minutes.


To make a toddler-friendly flaming torch you will need:

- Several pieces of orange and yellow tissue paper
- a cardboard cone


Here's how we made it

- Using the wide end of the Bostik Fine and Wide Glu Pen put a small amount of glu in the middle of the first sheet of tissue paper and stick the next sheet to it. Repeat until all of the sheets are stuck together.
- Using the fine end of the Bostik Fine and Wide Glu Pen draw a wiggly line of glu around the inner edge of the cardboard cone.
- Bunch the tissue paper together and stick it to the glu on the cardboard cone.
- Once it has all dried your flaming torch is ready to play with!
