Hi Kelli, these are nice ideas, and very colorful, at that! You did not mention how to make them, though. Can you share some ideas about which materials to use, how to make them, and which age group this activity is most ideal for? I am planning to do this with my nephew, but have zero idea how to start as I am not really a crafts person...but badly want to learn. Help!

Thank you! :)
