Kid’s Craft Week #5-Clover Art

29 Apr

After last week’s binocular craft, we looked at LOTS of things with binoculars.  One item of particular interest was the clover growing in a patch in our front garden bed.  The Girlio kept wanting to pick some so I thought heck-let’s make it a craft.  This was super easy.  We picked clover (and a few flowers), I drew shapes (dictated by The Girlio) with glue on paper plates, and she laid the clover and flowers down on top.  Super easy and fun!

Kid’s Craft Week #4-Binoculars

22 Apr

The Girlio has been talking about how she wishes she could go bird watching (she saw it on Word World on PBS.)  So, I thought binoculars for bird watching sounded like a great project for Earth Day.  🙂

I let her paint two toilet paper rolls:

When they dried, I taped them together with clear packing tape (as to not ruin the pretty painted design!)  I punched holes in the sides and attached yarn, and voila-binoculars!  We have already been outside exploring with them and now we have a very interested bird…dog….ant…flower…squirrel watcher on our hands.  🙂

Another at Practical Scrappers!
