My four little bee’s have been busy crafting away lately. The ground is still snow covered here and with each passing day the cabin fever only seems to worsen. Crafting has been one way to combat some of our cabin fever. After all what kid doesn’t like paint; and, what parent doesn’t love those little stamped hands, and feet?
We made several spring cards to pass out to neighbors and friends. Once the weather breaks we will likely run from house to house out of shear joy. Yes, winter has been that long.
Card 1: Supplies needed 1 sheet of blue paper, white washable paint, pink washable paint, paint brush, wiggle eyes, glue, and permanent marker. Fold the blue paper in half, paint your child’s hand minus the thumb, and place the painted hand strategically on the paper. Let the white paint dry a bit before painting the inner most part of the bunny ear and nose. Place wiggle eyes, draw whiskers, and put a special message. “Some Bunny Loves You” ! I recommend making several cards to keep on hand for all of those “just because” moments.
Card #2: Supplies needed 1 sheet of greet paper, white card stock paper, green washable paint, orange washable paint, black permanent marker. Fold the green paper in half to form the card. Stamp your child’s foot on the white card stock paper. Let it dry. Free hand the carrot greens (I also tried stamping a few fingers to get the same affect) once dry cut carefully around the outer edge of the carrot foot. Glue onto the green “card” and write a special message.
Paper Plate Bunny: Supplies needed 2 paper plates, cotton balls or quilter batting, 2 sheets of card stock paper, pint washable paint, 1 pipe cleaner cut into 4 pieces, wiggle eyes, glue, and hot glue gun, stapler.
