    You will need

    • Tongue depressors or popsicle sticks
    • Cardboard or construction paper
    • Scissors
    • Paint
    • Markers
    • Collage materials
    • Double-sided tape

     

    How to make

    1. Create different templates based on your favorite character or animal. Choose drawings from coloring books.
    2. Cut out your template and decorate with the materials on hand.
    3. Add as many details as you like. Use dried grass to make a scare-crow. Wiggly eyes add an element of fun, as do glitters.
    4. Attach the tongue depressor on one side of the template using double-sided tape.

     

    Smart tip: Double-sided tape works very well in craft activities; it’s less messy and just as effective as glue.
