The first step is to paint the canvas. You don’t have to do anything special; simply paint a few layers and let it dry.
Once you’ve, let it dry, look at the screen and see if there are any areas that fill in the. Color and let dry again. It seems I always miss an area when painting, and the kids do it too!
An egg carton has 12 boxes (usually). You’ll want to use a cardboard box for painting purposes. Cut out the 12 boxes apart with a pair of scissors.
With scissors, cut the egg carton compartments in flowers. This basically means cutting a “U” or “V” the Form in each side of the tray.
Older children can do this yourself, but you will probably have to help the younger children. This is the perfect thing to while the children paint their canvases.
Use it to coat the red color that the 12-egg trays, which now look like buds. This is the fun part! Your kids will love painting the egg cartons. Coat completely and allow to drylet
tip for parents: speed up the paint drying time with a hair dryer! It helps so that children don’t have to sit there for 20 minutes and watch the paint dry.
In six of the egg-boxes, you’re going to poke four holes. It is a circle in the middle is the base of the chambers, so poke holes on the outside of the circle, the between “petal.”
The reason for poking these holes, because they go to the string, the whistle of the gold cleaner through six of the flowers.
This is why you need an awl, pencil, or any other “poking tool.” Even a barbecue skewer or a small knitting needle works. Not to tear you have to be careful, the bottom of the egg carton flower. Simply turn and press gently!
This is something that the older children could have to be able to handle, but parents should do, also for smaller children.
time to string the pipe cleaners! You should whistle six gold cleaner; cut them into two halves.
feed the half of the pipe cleaner through the two holes, and the other half through the other two holes. Pipe cleaners criss-cross on the ground.
Repeat with the remaining five flowers. Rotate the pipe cleaner, simply secure it in the middle, and cut, if you want to. A great Christmas craft for kids is almost ready!
you are probably wondering what you’re with the rest of the six flowers that were’t, decorated with pipe cleaners. You’re going to glue a flower with pipe cleaners down in an empty flower, twist so that the petals don’t match.
you you can use craft glue or hot glue for your glue.
For the green cleaner, you’ll want to tie you whistle, together with a length of gold ribbon.
Arrange your flowers on the canvas in the way you want, then glue down with craft glue.
Cut the green pipe cleaner down to the bottom of the Christmas star, and glue it down. Let everything dry.
