Free for All Craft Week: Day 1

Hello all!  Well, today in Statesboro, GA brought rain, rain and more rain!  Since it was pretty dreary out, we needed to find some fun crafts.  We ended up doing more crafts today because it was rainy.  That's ok though.  It's all about being flexible!

Rainbow Paper Plate Craft


For this craft you need half a paper plate, 6 streamers or ribbon in rainbow colors,
cottonballs, glue, and a stapler.

Steps:

1.  Cut paper plate in half.
2.  Apply glue and have kids stick the cottonballs all over to make a cloud.
3.  Staple or glue your ribbons to the bottom of the plate.
4.  Add a stringhanger.

They will help brighten up a dreary day!


Here's Madi showing off her masterpiece!



Next we made hang puppets our of small white paper bags.

Items needed:
Small white paper bags
Markers
yarn/eyes/fuzzy yarn balls

Super easy and they can be as creative as they want!





We had a little puppet show, which pretty much consisted of my kids
giggling their butts off.

Oh well, I tried!

Last, we made fish (this was Jacob's idea)


All you do is cut a triangle out of a paper plate and glue/staple it to the back.  Add and eye and let the kids decorate as they want.  You could add macaroni for gills, glitter...you name it. 

No matter what you do, the goal is to have fun with your kids.
I was happy to see my kids gathered together being creative and
having fun at our table. 


Happy Creating to you!
Hope to see you tomorrow!
