May is not only National Duckling Month but also National Egg Month. What better way to start the month than with a craft that celebrates both!?
Duckling Eggs in Nest Craft
by: J. Davis
-light blue and white (more like off-white) construction paper
1. Cut 2 eggs out of white construction paper and glue them onto the middle of the light blue paper.
2. Wrap brown yarn around your hand about 20 times. Cut the yarn in the middle of your palm and then cut the strips of yarn in half.
3. Create a nest shape out of glue surrounding your eggs. Smear with finger (or a brush) to make a solid patch (nest) of glue.
4. Drop yarn pieces on glue. Press down after you have the glue mostly covered to adhere yarn to the glue.
This craft from http://www.dltk-holidays.com/spring/mmayday-basket.htm is the perfect one to end off National Garden Month and start out the month of May!
Continuing the flower theme for National Garden Month, try this craft from http://familycrafts.about.com/od/makingflowers/a/HawaiianLeiCraft.htm.
What’s better than some springy daffodils on a sunny April day! Our paper art was made using an idea from http://www.busybeekidscrafts.com/Paper-Daffodils.html.
It’s Earth Day and Good Friday so if you are blessed enough to have good weather, GO OUTSIDE! Our weather stinks here today so we opted to talk about the ocean and watch some Finding Nemo. This afternoon we have plans to make a construction paper collage/painting of a clownfish in an anemone!
The anemone and fish were cut out of paper and then we used our fingers to paint the stripes and bubbles!
Check out our version of this handprint craft found at http://crafts.kaboose.com/easter-chick-card.html.
Try out this simple easter bunny ears craft from http://crafts.kaboose.com/bunnyears.html. We put our ears on the front of the band to keep it from looking to much like a bunny wearing a sweat band. Additionally, we used pink construction paper mounted on regular white printer paper which gave the ears a little flop!
