Masketeers

It’s Carnival Time! Instead of making a whole mask, the kids gigantic face parts – and it really brought out the silly in them.

You don’t need too many supplies:

  • cardboard
  • tempera paint
  • glue
  • scissors
  • wooden skewers

IMG_2555To make the masks just draw out a body part, cut and paint. When the paint is dry, glue the skewer onto the back and…wahlah you are done.

A Christmas Tree Craft For Your Crafty Christmas Tree

IMG_2365Just in time for Christmas, another decoration for your tree – and you can recycle to boot!

4 pics1. Supplies:

  • recycled wrapping paper, newspapers or magazines cut into 1 cm x 5 cm strips
  • glue
  • scissors
  • 1/2 circle cut out of construction paper (about15 diameter)
  • yarn

optional:

  • yellow paper for a star
  • glitter

Step 2: Glue half circle into cone shape.  Squirt a line of glue along the bottom ridge and stick the strips of paper (decorated side down) onto the cone.

Step 3:  Once you have covered the whole bottom part of the cone with strips of paper, put another line of glue on the cone, just above the strips of paper.  Now, pull the strips of paper up and glue down (will form a loop shape).

Step 4: Keep on gluing the tiers of loops until you’ve covered the whole cone.

Step 5:  Tie a short length of yarn into a loop and poke the yarn out of the top of the tree.  (Make sure you tie a big enough knot so that the yarn doesn’t slip out).

Optional:

Step 6: Cut out 2 small stars, put some on some glue, sandwich the yarn and the tip of the tree between the 2 stars and glue closed.  This will help fix the yarn to the tree and keep it from slipping out.

Step 7: Add on your decorations.  We hole punched some sparkly craft foam and glued them on.  You could also put dots of  onto the ‘branches’ and sprinkle on some glitter.

You are finished -now you have a really cool tree to hang on your Christmas tree.

Winter Clothes

We love Miss Tracy from Little Story Bug, she sings so many great songs that make learning fun!  Let’s Get Dressed For Winter Song is a good one to keep learning clothes from the story The Jacket I Wear In The Snow:

We sing this song with a storyboard. This storyboard was sort of complicated to make, all the pieces have velcro glued to the back, but the hair, hands, socks and collar of the jacket are redone in felt.  You can print out the colored version or color your own in the black and white.  If you draw little tabs onto the clothes, you can use them as paper dolls.
