It’s Craft Time- Paper Roll Animals

Crafts are a fun way to get personal with your little one. It is an intentional time to be silly, messy, and creative!

As parents we are always directing and instructing. It is good to show your little genius that you too can follow directions and have fun. During craft time, let your little one lead the way. When you take time to do fun things with your little genius, you are teaching them that life is fun!

Below I have posted a craft for you and your little genius. If you do the craft be sure to comment and post a picture!

Paper Roll Animals

  • Toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls cut down to a shorter length
  • Paint – we used acrylic
  • Cardboard from a cereal box or something similar
  • Googly eyes
  • Construction paper
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • Glue – Tacky Glue is a good choice

First, paint your cardboard tubes a solid color. Tan, brown, and white are good color choices.

Attach the eyes, ears, and nose with glue.

Then cut out paws and a tail from cereal box cardboard. Paint them, and then add pads to the paws with a Sharpie marker.

Glue on the paws and the tail, and your doggie is complete!

And you’re done!!

HOW TO MAKE A PAPER PLATE BEE CRAFT

Supplies:

Step 1: Paint the paper plate yellow and let it dry. We used small paper plates but any size plate will work just fine.

Step 2: Use a pom pom with a clothespin as handle to paint black stripes on the paper plate. Start at the bottom and go about halfway up. Leave the paper plate yellow at the top as this is where we’ll glue the googly eyes.

Step 3: Paint two wooden clothespins black and after they dried up, glue two black pom poms at the top. One pom pom for each clothespin. These will be the bee’s antennae.

And you’re done!!

How to Make Easy Pipe Cleaner Finger Puppets

Start by wrapping a pipe cleaner around your finger 3-4 times, leaving half of the pipe cleaner unwrapped.

Fold the straight end of the pipe cleaner to make one ear, then another, securing in the middle.

Glue a matching pom-pom over the part of the pipe cleaner where the ears intersect. This also secures your puppet in place.

Attach google eyes. And you’re done!!

Scheduling Power

As a parent or guardian, if you want personal time you must master having a schedule! Schedules may seem daunting and tedious, but it will allow you to be intentional about time with your little genius and time with yourself. A schedule does not have to be complex, simply outline what time you play, sleep, go on outings and eat. Setting these simple boundaries will introduce peace into your day and consistency into the day of your little genius.
