Craft Ideas for Italy
Romans used wax coated wooden tablets. Try making some by coating
one side of a piece of cardboard with wax crayon, and then using a small
stick (matchstick?) to write on the wax.
Design a mosaic using small squares of paper. You could use
gummed paper, or cut up pictures from old magazines (good for getting lots
of different shades).
Make brooches - Romans liked wearing jewelry, particularly brooches.
Cut circles, diamonds, triangles or other shapes out of stiff card. Decorate
by gluing pasta shapes, string patterns, seeds, etc. Once the glue is dry,
spray the whole brooch with gold or silver paint. Once dry, attach a safety
pin to the back with sticky tape.
Make a Venetian masquerade mask (sorry, we don't have instructions)
