For this project, I put out a bunch of craft supplies and recycled items I picked up from R.A.F.T. and suggested that they make their own minions.
I picked up small wooden race cars on clearance at Joanns. I invited the kids to decorate their cars and then race them on our track.
Paper Bag Puppets and Buildings
I scattered around yarn, tissue paper, ribbon, scrapbook paper and other craft supplies. The kids were encouraged to make puppets and/ or a building with their paperbags.
The kids who built buildings decided to work together to make a town. They were so excited that they jumped up and down and clapped each time someone added a new building! It was awesome.
|The put down some of the paper we had used to make the race track and drew a road and sidewalks|
|One of the girls made bushes and trees.|
|I laughed out loud with glee when I saw that one of the boys had made a Target store and then made Target his race car sponsor. How clever!|
It was such a relaxing and joyful afternoon. I love introducing the kids to new kinds of projects yet the simple crafts we did when we were kids still deliver a ton of fun.
