Kid Craft- Hobbit Doors

This week, in honor of Tolkien Reading Day, which was March 25th, my SURF Club girls designed hobbit doors.

For this craft I supplied:

  • cake boards (these were donated to me, but they can be found in hobby stores in the baking section)
  • markers
  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue sticks
  • embellishments, such as buttons, sequins, die cuts, etc. (optional)

When I craft with my girls, I give them a theme and the supplies and maybe an instruction or idea, but otherwise I let them freely create as their hearts desire. Of course, I do have to put a limit on the embellishments because some of my cute girls would use up all my craft supplies in one go if I let them!

For this craft, most of my girls started by coloring the white side of their cake boards with markers. After that, some cut construction paper to look like bricks, stones, and the doorknob.

I just have to show off my daughter’s hobbit doors. She decorated each side of her cake board.

ā™„ Are you ready for April? We’ve had a lot of rain and snow showers here in Utah lately. I’m hoping there are some drier days next week so I can get outside and weed my flower beds. My crocuses are popping out of the ground and I’m excited for blossoms to appear on my trees. ā™„

  1. What a fun project. I miss my days when my kids were little and we had craft parties at our house. That is so funny about the embellishments being used up. I had the same problem so I ended up giving each child a tiny paper cup filled with embellishments instead of letting them pour out the whole giant pickle jar I stored them in. I also had to pass out paint and glue myself. The first time I allowed the kids to do their own paints and glue everyone had glue hands they were peeling and they poured the paint out to make colorful mini ponds on their paper plates. I learned my lesson. Your girls did a great job, love all their designs and colors.

    1. Thank you! And how funny you should mention mini paint ponds. I had some of that today as a group of my craft girls were painting rocks for a project we’re working on this month. My attention was divided because my missionary daughter was Skyping at the same time and that was the result- little paper plates filled to the brim with watered down paint! šŸ˜‚ Thanks for sharing your memories. It’s sweet you also held craft parties and can relate. šŸ’›
