YOU’VE SEEN THE MOVIE, NOW READ THE BOOK – PART 2

At this point in the long strange trip that has been 2020, sitting in a crowded, dark movie theater for a few hours of escapist entertainment feels like a distant dream.  Of course, that doesn’t mean we are deprived of the film experience; streaming services have done a fantastic job of filling the gap.

KIDS CRAFTS WITH KAREN- BUTTERFLIES

Butterflies are out in abundance this time of year. We see them in the garden or soaring through the air. Let’s make one of our own.

You will need: 3 colors of tissue paper, scissors, 1 pipe cleaner, a ruler and a pencil.

Choose three colors and lay them flat one on top of the other. Measure 5 inches from the side and the top to make a square and cut it out.

Fold about a half inch and again and again like an accordion as shown. Then fold in half and cut a round corner.

KIDS CRAFTS WITH KAREN-POP-UP PALS

Hello Crafters! This week we will make some fun pop-ups-a bear, mouse and bunny.

You will need: print out 2 copies of template, markers or coloring pencils, scissors, glue.

Color and cut out the template pattern.

Fold it accordion style, back and forth on the lines below the animal.

Glue only the animals body and the cup at the bottom together leaving the folded parts loose.

Enjoy!
