I haven’t posted anything in a few weeks so it was about time we did a craft. Finally getting settled enough to bring the crafts out and have some fun. Today was glitter explosion! I don’t know what I would do without our craft tray I got many months ago. It keeps 90% of all the glitter in the tray, rather find that 10% around the house rather than all of it!
While going through my craft supplies I found a couple of old hand prints I had cut out of Jackson’s a few months ago (I’m guessing I really don’t remember when I cut them out). Since Thanksgiving is the next holiday we will celebrate I figured I might as well turn those hand prints into some turkeys!
What you need:
- Construction paper
- Paper towel tube
Step 1: Make your handprints
Trace your child’s hand and cut it out on the construction paper. Sorry I don’t have pictures of this step since it was already done.
Step 2: Glue
Place glue all over the hand prints, one at a time since it tends to dry fast in a thin layer. We used clear school glue.
Step 3: GLITTER!!!!
You can decorate any time you want, but we used glitter. Gold, copper, silver, blue, green, and purple is what we used.
Step 4: DRY
Allow your turkeys to dry other wise the fingers will bend.
Step 5: Cut your tube
Cut your card board tube from 1 1/2 inch – 3 inches. Depending on how many turkeys you are doing.
Step 6: Glue the Turkeys!
Glue your turkeys on to your tubes. The bottom should stand to the bottom of the tube so that it is standing straight.
We added some sequins as eyes. Over all I think they came out pretty cute and Jackson really enjoyed playing with glitter. These would be great for Thanksgiving as place card holders or decorations.
Have fun making yours and send pictures if you want!
