Although we're dealing with a wind/rain storm today, there is no question winter weather is just around the corner so we're going to start some fun winter-themed crafts for the kids. Everyone loves a snowman so today we're making one where snow is not a requirement... 

Paper Snowman

What you need:

  • 2 sheets of white paper (plain print paper will do although construction paper will work best)
  • paper in any other color (and a bit for orange nose, can also be drawn)
  • black marker
  • glue, scissors
  • optional – buttons, cupcake liner, sequin

Directions:

Start by cutting strips of paper in two, different lengths. Create the different lengths by cutting strips across the sheets of white paper - one set cutting along the length and one set cutting along the width (strips being about half an inch / 1 cm wide).
Now assemble the paper balls. If you don’t know how you can check out this link (paper balls), the procedure is the same, with the difference you’ll be making two, different size balls for one snowman.
Draw on or stick on all the details, the eyes, nose and buttons. Cut a long strip of color paper and make a scarf. You can also use a cupcake liner as a hat, it looks kind of cute.
You can make a whole bunch of them and make a garland. Your snowman will be super cute and won't melt!

Masterpiece Monday - Nov 9

Today is another Remembrance Day craft. This one is not only fun to do, it also creates a pin on poppy with a variety of uses. Lest we Forget.

What You Need:

  • coffee filters
  • food colouring or liquid watercolours (we used both, and used shades of red, orange, pink and purple)
  • black buttons
  • paint brushes
  • ice cube tray or small bowls
  • pipe cleaner
  • safety pin
  • plastic table cloth

Instructions:

Because this craft involves food colouring, be sure to protect the surface that you're working on. 

Start by adding a small amount of water to an ice cube tray. For really vibrant colours fill each ice cube section about half-way with water then add the colour. 

Here's a tip - place the ice cube tray in a shallow pan to prevent it from being tipped over. Give the little crafters each several coffee filters. Poppies have a lot of texture, so crumple, wrinkle and twist the coffee filters before painting them. 

Next, the fun begins as the kids get to work with their paintbrushes, dabbing and smearing.

At times, to intensify the colour and to make the absorption process more noticeable, you can add a drop or two of food colouring directly to the wet coffee filter and let them swish the colours around with their paintbrushes. To dry the coffee filters, place them on cookie sheets until dry. 

When they are fully dried they're ready to be turned into flowers. To do that, layer two coffee filters and pinched them together at the back. Wrap a small length a pipe cleaner around the pinched section of paper to secure everything together. To finish, glue black buttons to the centres of the poppies. Now, you can use a safety pin to create your very own poppy pin.

Today is a simple craft but it can take the imagination to many places. But, this one does need an adult to get things started. Today, we're potatoe stamping!

Supplies:

potatoes
paint
paint brush
paper

Instructions:

Adults: Find some long and thin potatoes and chop them in half. Then use a sharp knife to carve out the desired shape (in this case it was a leaf). Give your little ones some paint and a brush and let them get to it. Just dip your potatoe in the paint and start stamping. You can even join is because it's really fun and gives you some family time being creative.

Pumpkin Spice Play dough


Yes, I'm jumping on the pumpkin spice bandwagon but this one was too good to pass up!! Who doesn't love getting creative with play dough and it smells like pumpkin spice!!! Amazing! This is as fall as it gets!

P.S. Adult supervision will be needed for this one.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup of salt (a little more if you use kosher)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil*
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice (or a mix of cinnamon/nutmeg/cloves)
  • optional: food coloring or natural food based dyes (such as beet juice and turmeric)

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients (except coloring) in a large pot.  
  2. Stir over medium heat until a big ball forms. (It should be smooth and no longer sticky.)
  3. Remove from pot and allow to cool until the dough can be worked by hand.
  4. Divide the dough into however many different colors you want.
  5. Work the colors into the dough by adding a few drops at a time and kneading. (We used food coloring for red, yellow, and orange and left one brown.  Similar colors could be achieved with natural juices: beet, carrot, turmeric.)
  6. Enjoy!

* Coconut oil is a secret ingredient. They say it makes the best play dough ever.

We're only a couple weeks away from Thanksgiving so I chose a fun, turkey-themed craft today. This projects includes some beautiful colourful fall leaves, so it's a great opportunity to get outside to collect some supplies. 

What you need:

Directions:

Print out our template. There are two pages included, one with only one turkey on it that can be used as a base (you can skip this one) and one with two turkeys for kids to color in and cut out. Color in the turkey with markers, crayons, chalk, colouring pencils, etc. Once colored, cut out the turkey and it’s feet. Take the other sheet of paper, with the turkey craft base and apply a generous amount of glue on the tail area. Alternatively you can also apply glue on the leaves only. Stick the leaves on the turkey template. If you want a multi-colored turkey tail, we recommend you make the base with larger red leaves, and place smaller yellow leaves on top of them. Continue sticking leaves on the template, adding glue either on the leaves or on the base as you go. Once happy with how the turkey tail is starting to look, glue on two turkey feet on the base (you can also glue them directly on the colored body, whichever feels easier). Take the colored turkey body, apply a generous amount of glue on the back. Press the turkey body to the base. Give the glue some time to dry.

Voila! You’ve made a fun looking turkey

Bookmark Craft Using Pressed Flowers and Leaves


We have to face the fact that summer is leaving so let's make something that can preserve a piece of it. This craft actually will take a few days of preparation but it will be fun and worth it. Now, go grab a pretty flower or some plant pieces from your garden and follow the instructions... 

Materials 

  • Various leaves and flowers
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Contact paper or laminator
  • Single hole punch 
  • Yarn, string, or raffia ribbon

 

Directions 

1. To make this bookmark craft, you’ll need some pressed leaves and flowers. Here’s how we pressed ours:

  • Take a nature walk or head into your own backyard and pick some small flowers and leaves.
  • Press your flowers and leaves by placing them inside the pages of a thick book for 3-4 days.
  • Once your flowers and leaves are pressed and dry, carefully remove them from the book.

2. Cut some cardstock the size you’d like your bookmark to be. (i.e. 6 inches x 2 inches.) 

3. Use your pressed flowers and leaves to make a design on your cardstock. Once you’re happy with the design, you’ll want to lightly attach the flowers and leaves to your bookmark before you permanently cover them up. You can use a glue stick.

4. Next you’ll want to cover the bookmarks with plastic to protect them during use. You can use a laminator, but you can also cover your bookmark with clear contact paper.

5. Once you’ve covered your bookmark, trim off the excess plastic.

6. Now it’s time to add the finishing details- get as creative as you’d like! Some suggestions are a small single hole punch to punch holes around the border of bookmark and then thread some cord (i.e yarn) around the border and tie it off at the top.

School is just around the corner so let's do a fun craft the the kids can use when they return to classes...


DIY Bookworm Paper Roll Pencil Holder

What you need:

  • paper rolls (store bought, toilet paper rolls, kitchen towel rolls…)
  • green paper or paint
  • red paper
  • white paper
  • gray construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • black marker
  • stapler (younger kids can use glue instead of stapler)


Directions:

Paint the paper rolls green or wrap them in green paper (regular print paper works best). Make glasses. Draw a glasses outline – we used a lid of a small cream to trace two circles overlapping one another. Cut them out. Also cut two smaller white circles. Glue them inside the gray glasses and draw black dots for eyes. Now glue the glasses on one of the green paper rolls. Draw the mouth on the paper roll. Staple all the green paper rolls together. You can staple the one with the glasses a bit higher than the others. Now to make the book for the bookworm. Cut a red rectangle and fold it in half. This makes the book cover. Also cut white rectangles (make them smaller than the red one), fold them in half and scribble on the pages to get the book look. Glue or staple the pages and the book cover together. Cut two hands out of green paper. Glue them on the bookworm. Apply glue at the end of the hands (you can fold them a bit). Glue the book to the bookworm’s hands. All done, your DIY Bookworm Paper Roll Pencil Holder is all done and ready to hold some pencils!

August 17th - Masterpiece Monday: Microwave Puffy Paint 


I found this quick, fun craft online (Happinesishomemade.net) and filed it away for a rainy day. I honestly was starting to think we would never get to use it but today is the day!

Microwave Puffy Paint


Supplies
:

Baking Powder

Flour

Salt

Water

Food colouring

Paper  

Ziploc baggies

 

Directions:

Start with one cup of flour and mix in 3 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt and enough water to make it the consistency of pancake batter. Divide the mixture into four parts and put them into snack size Ziploc baggies along with some food coloring. Part of the fun was squishing it all around to mix up the colors!

Rubber band the baggies like you would if you were icing a cake and snip off the teeniest little bit of the tip.

Paint away on a piece of paper! When you’re finished, pop the painting into the microwave for 30-45 seconds and watch the paint puff up and grow – such fun! It is completely dry out of the microwave so no worries about any extra messes or accidents.

Nothing beats cheap entertainment, especially with some fine motor skills practice and a built-in kitchen science lesson! Enjoy!

Masterpiece Monday - July 27

I found today's project online. We have another simple craft but one that the kids (and adults) will appreciate and have fun with; especially tomorrow when temperatures are supposed to soar and be hot! We're making Sponge Water Bombs!

Supplies:

Colorful sponges
String/baker's twine
Scissors

Directions:

Cut each sponge into three strips (about 1 inch wide). Stack nine strips together (3 layers of 3), tie the string around the sponges, pulling tightly, and knot in the middle. Make a double knot just to be safe. You're done! It's that easy!

The great thing about these sponge bombs is that they’re durable. The kids can throw them around for hours and at the end of the day after a quick wash they’re still in great shape. It’s a fun summer activity when the kids are bored and it’s hot outside.

Daisy Chain

Have you ever heard of a Daisy Chain? Me either...but my friend discovered daisies have arrived for the season and she was telling me about a Daisy Chain. I thought this was a perfect, fun, simple summer craft to kick-off our first official summer Masterpiece Monday.

Here are the easy steps:

1) Go pick a bunch of daises.

daisies

2) Using your fingernail, crave a 1/2 inch slit into the stem on one of the daisies

fingernail slit

3) Now take another daisy from your bunch and pull the stem through the slit of the original daisy. Repeat this with your other daisies to create a chain-like effect.

daisy link

4) Once you have linked all of your daisies together, finish off the chain by connecting the first daisy to the last daisy. To do this, you must make a slit in the last daisy on the chain. But this time, instead of making the slit a half inch long, go for about an inch. This way you can link the original daisy through the slit. To make the daisy fit through the slit more readily, you may pluck the petals off of your original daisy, and pull her on through!

You could really use any flower to create this pretty chain...send me your creation at nbarteaux@annapoliscounty.ca and I'll share your masterpieces on our Facebook page. 

Have fun and enjoy summer!




Masterpiece Monday June 15th: 

Peanut Butter Birdfeeder - This is a great activity that our little feathered friends will appreciate...and the squirrels! Make sure there is an adult present to help you.

Materials:
 
Peanut butter mix (peanut butter and, if you have some on hand, oat bran  - this helps birds digest the peanut butter)

butter knife 
 
Birdseed
 
Twine

Scissors (to cut twine)

Pinecones

Paper (to place the completed bird feeders on)

Directions:

To start, put a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter and a spoonful of oat bran (if you have s
some) in a bowl and mix it together and set aside. With the help of a grown up, take the twine and twist in around the pinecone so you'll be able to hang it up when the project is complete. Now, carefully take the butter knife and use it to spread the peanut butter mixture all over the pinecone. Take your peanut butter pinecone and roll it around in the bowl of birdseed. As each feeder is completed on the paper and continue to make the feeders until your materials are gone. 

Now, take your birdfeeders and hang them in the bushes and trees around your property where the birds will enjoy a feast!

June 8th Masterpiece Monday


Happy Monday!!! Today I'm bringing something back from a few months ago. It's a creative craft my daughter and I had fun doing for Earth Day, but with all the new foliage and flowers blooming I think it would be fun to see what colourful masterpieces could be created now.

The craft is called a "Diorama". It's basically finding supplies that are all around you and creating a picture with them. This can be an inside or outside project. We chose supplies from around the yard and created a woodland scene.

Use your imagination...the possibilities are endless.

Materials:
container eg. shoe box, kleenex box 
scissors 
glue stick 
white glue 
glue gun 
double-sided tape 
assortment of items you can find around your house or outdoors to create your miniature world (eg. small toys, coloured paper, magazines, twigs, bark, pine cones, moss, pressed and dried leaves and flowers, etc.)

Directions:
Just cut the top off your box and you’re good to go. Pick out a theme so you can decide what supplies to collect. It can be based on a book you read or a movie you saw; something you’re passionate about like insects, pirates or music; travelling back to prehistoric times, to dinosaurs, to the roaring 20’s; an enchanted garden; the most amazing candy shop in the world, etc. The inside of the box can be painted, or covered with coloured paper, magazine cutouts or printables. Double sided tape is great for sticking the paper on, so you don’t have to wait for glue to dry before working on the rest. The rest involves filling the space with small items that fit in with your theme.
