Thank you for joining me on our adventure of Break Cabin Fever-26 Days of ABC Crafts. If you need more info or a look back, please click HERE.
I hope you're as EGG-CITED as I am. Here we go!
Elephant Mask-Using a paper plate and toilet paper roll, you can make an elephant mask for your child. Have them paint the paper plate and roll with gray paint. Once dry, cut out holes for the eyes and glue on the toilet paper roll for the nose. Attach ears made out of paper and add a Popsicle stick for the holder.
Dotty Eggs-Using dot paint pens, let your child decorate some egg cutouts. This would also be great for Easter.
Shaving Cream Eggs- This is another great Easter craft. Take an aluminum pan, and spray some shaving cream in it. Add several shades of paint. With a paint brush/stick, swirl the colors around. Take some egg shape cutouts and press it into the shaving cream. Let them dry on some paper towels. The shaving cream will leave a fun texture on the paper.
Egg-shell "E"-Next time you make eggs, save the eggshells. Wash them with warm water & soap. Let dry. Crush them in a baggie. Apply some glue to paper and use the egg shells to make a fun texture.
Eskimo-Using tissue paper & construction paper, you can make an Eskimo. First cut out a circle and glue it to another piece of paper. This is the head. Now spread glue just along the edge of the circle. Have your child add white tissue paper to the glue. Once dry, add a smiley face to your Eskimo.
Snack ideas: Eggs! Scrambled, fried, poached or baked. Whatever your child likes, go for it!
Now if those crafts didn't get your brain going, here are some "E" words to get the brain inspired: eagle, earmuffs, earphones, earrings, easel, egg beater, elastic, elevator, elf, engine, envelope, eraser
Check back tomorrow for a FUN, FILLED day!!
