Trolls Party Ideas Easy Crafts For Kids

Trolls Party Ideas Easy Crafts For Kids

What you need:

  • Pencils ( I got mine at the dollar store)
  • Fake fur, about an 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch square for each pencil
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Colored felt
  • Wiggly Eyes

I got my fake fur from Joanns Fabric. I was able to buy a 3 inch strip for only $1.24 (they were having a 40% off sale).  This strip was MORE than what I needed. But they said they had a “minimum of cut of 3 inches”.  I was happy to pay the $1.24.  If I wanted it could easily provide me enough fur to make about 60 pencils.  This craft is so fun and LOW COST too!

Start by cutting a 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch square of fake fur for your Trolls hair. When you cut the fur, use your fingers to create a part to try and avoid cutting off the long hair.  Use the hot glue to wrap the fur around the pencil. If your child plans to use the pencil, remember to leave the eraser exposed.   Glue your eyes on, and a felt nose. Easy as that you are done!

Easy Thanksgiving Sign… fun project to do on a chilly  Fall day!

Easy Thanksgiving Sign

I think Thanksgiving sometimes gets lost in the shuffle between Halloween and all of the fun there and Christmas and all the festivity with the Christmas season.  I for one love the fall season and colors so I enjoy decorating and bringing that into my home as long as possible!

This year I really do love gold.  I love the warmth it adds to the oranges, reds and browns.  It is so beautiful.

For this craft you will need

a piece of wood

paint of choice

vinyl of choice

Begin by choosing the size for your wood board.  Mine was 14×11.  Sand it and then paint your color of choice.  Now distress if desired.  I chose not to for this particular piece because I felt like the gold needed the glamour of clean paint.

I then cut out my vinyl with my Silhouette cutting machine.  I love this baby and use it all of the time!  I used gold oracal vinyl and after I created my vinyl, I arranged the letters to fit them all on a 9×12 sheet of vinyl.  I don’t like wasting any!

I used my transfer tape and applied my vinyl to the board after letting it dry for a day.  I love the way that it turned out!  The gold is very classy and stands out against the white beautifully!

Easy Fall Art Projects For Kids ~ that are low cost, easy, and turn out beautiful every time!

Fall craft projects for kids, LEAF RUBBING perfect for school age children, girl scout or boy scout craft ideas that are both educational and low cost

Easy Fall Art Projects For Kids ~ Leaf Rubbing

Leaf Rubbing can be done any time of the year (that you can find leaves) but we always do it in the Fall. I think it is because we see the beautiful colors they turn, thanks for mother nature and want to recreate that in an art project.  This is a great project to make with school age children or adults. Perfect for church groups or even girls scouts or boy scouts as they learn about different trees or plants.

To make you own leaf rubbing all you need is white  paper, I normally use a sturdy copy paper. Coloring crayons with the wrappers taken off, and scotch tape. You will also need an assortment of leaves fresh picked, so the ridges or lines show up good.

Tape your paper on one edge to the surface you are going to work on. In the photo below I have it taped to my side walk. But taping it to a table works just fine too.  I found that taping the paper helps the paper NOT shift so much and makes for a prettier finished picture.  Lay the leaves you have collected under the paper, put the paper on top.  Start rubbing the top of the paper using the length of your crayon as the coloring surface. Use as many colors as you want, watch a beautiful  image appear.
