Madison and I had a great day with crafts today. We did 3 different projects and today I will share the first one. This is a great recycle and kid friendly project (with parents help and supervision).
I also don't know what to call this project.
Carry Along Treasure Can??
We used/recycled an empty infant formula can for this project.
Anything you want to decorate your can with. We used glitter, ribbon, beads, and flowers.
You Will Also Need:
Measuring Tape/Ruler, Scissors, Glue Gun, Glue Sticks, Paper, and a Pen.
Take off the label of your can and measure it.
Cut your paper to fit around your can.
This is where you and your kids can decorate to your hearts content :)
Let their imaginations run wild.
Have fun and enjoy this time with your little ones. They are only young once.
Madison and I had a wonderful time :)
Glue your decorated paper to the can.
Add your ribbon straps. Flip your can over and hot glue ribbon across the bottom and up the sides. Then tie in a double knot along with a pretty bow. This will be your handle to carry your can from adventure to adventure.
Decorate the lid
We decided to put flowers on our lid.
With the glue gun tip, melt and push through 3 holes to the top of the lid.
Glue flowers in place and cover any gaps with ribbon bows.
Come back tomorrow to see the treasures we found :)
