Recycled magic wand craft for kids

Today my son decided he wanted to make something for his little sister. how adorable is that? For the last few days she has been absolutely obsessed with a cardboard tube from inside a foil roll, so I suggested perhaps we should turn it into a magic wand for her. He loved the idea and together we came up with this adorable recycled magic wand craft. For the most part we used recycled materials and after i had glued it together he added some craft buttons too. If you’re planning on making one I would definitely recommended using a glue gun if possible, it just makes them so much stronger. Our magic wand still looks completely untouched, even after being bashed around by a year old all day!

You will need

  • Long cardboard tube (the ones usually found in foil or cling film/saran wrap)
  • An old cereal box
  • Ribbons
  • Any optional decorations
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Glue (we used a glue gun because it’s just faster and the glue is a lot more durable. You can use pva, you’ll just need to peg the pieces whilst they dry, it probably won’t hold quite as strongly either)

How to make your recycled magic wand craft

Take your cardboard tube and paint it in your chosen colour. Once finished, pop it to one side to try.

Take your cereal box and cut out two identical stars. The easiest ways to do this are by either cutting two out at once or by drawing around your first one. Once they have both been cut out, paint them in your selected colour. Put your stars aside to dry.

Once your tube is dry, Cut out 6-8 equal lengths of ribbon and using your glue secure one end of each down on the inside of one side of your tube. Leave the other ends loose.

Glue one of your stars onto the tube and then cover all of it’s back edges in glue before securing the other star on the back.
