Just as I was finishing this post Chris piped up "do you realise that only Australians will know what 'lollies' are, don't you?". Ummm maybe???? Ok so, lollies = sweets = candy. Problem solved!
This is one of those super simple crafts.... and it involves no paint or glue or glitter!!! All you need is a square of tissue paper and a tissue – roll it up and twist the ends. Cakey tells you everything you need to know in the video below. Please have a look, Cakey is very excited that her tutorial will be watched and she is hoping that someone in this world will like to make a paper lolly too.
As you can see from the tutorial it doesn't take long to make a tissue paper lolly. My kids made many, they also enjoyed making tiny little lollies. We experimented with different shapes – discovering that a crumpled tissue makes a lovely round paper lolly and a folded tissue makes a more rectangular lolly.
Together we added some playdough lollies (sweets/candy). To make these, we rolled out a piece of blue playdough and a piece of pink playdough. We placed the pink playdough on top of the blue and then rolled the two together. I then sliced the roll to make swirly lollies which we popped into a jar for selling in our shop.
