Making a paddle for your big sister is one of the most fun experiences you’ll have as a new member! It’s your chance to show your big how much she means to you, and create something that represents your bond. Here are a few of our best tips for crafting the perfect paddle:
Make It Personal
Your paddle will mean so much more to your big if you include personal touches. This can be anything from a photo of the two of you together to drawings or stickers that represent things she loves.
Buy the Right Supplies
Littles are often so exited about the fun aspects of their paddles like glitter and paint, they forget about a serious essential: Shellac. It’s an absolute must-have for keeping gems, glitter, paper, and any other pieces on your paddle locked in place.
Quiz Your Big
As you’re planning out your paddle design, try to subtly learn more about your big’s taste. Asking simple questions like her favorite color, style icon, or clothing store can teach you tons about what type of paddle she’d like best.
The most important part of a paddle is the time and effort you put into it. Even if you’re not the best crafter, your big will love her paddle because she loves you!
