The 1st school day is a unique experience which will be remembered forever
School cones, also known as sugar cones, are an old tradition in Germany that looks back on a long history. Its beginning goes back in time, but since the 18th century the sugar cone has been a very important part of the first day of school. In the past, the little ones and their parents used to make different creative bags exactly for the 1.
I made it for my school day.
Nowadays you have an enormous choice of materials of fine cartons, which can always be formed anew and are worked out in different colours. You also have the opportunity to make the school bag for your little treasure yourself, because the procedure of this DIY project does not need any previous knowledge. First, you should discuss the main idea, motifs and textures for the cone with your child. If your child doesn’t have a clear idea, we have a few tips for you.
The main idea of the sugar cone naturally depends on the sex of the child. In recent years, motifs from various children’s films have become particularly popular for decorating the bag. If your kid has a favorite movie or actor, then the kid might have a great idea for his school bag. Very often the girls do not want textures or cool colours, but a decoration with dolls, roses and even mermaids.
Design the school bag according to your child’s individual taste
These motifs become a real eye-catcher in the schoolyard with a combination of 2 to 3 different fine boxes. In contrast to the girls, the boys are usually more interested in the contents of the school bag and not in the creative design. For the boys, you can choose motifs with cars and heroes from their favorite films such as “Star Wars”, or “Lego Film”. Suggest a few ideas to your child and decide on a feasible project.
Not many things belong to the material list. A long fine cardboard is very important. Get 2-3 pieces of different color of it. You should cut the fine cardboard into a four-part circle very precisely with scissors. For a sturdy school bag you need 2 boxes with such shape and so you can also put more things and sweets in the bag. You can select different colours for the inside and outside.
The design should be creative and unique
