Yesterday we loaded up our crafting supplies and went to our friends’ house. In celebration of Dr. Seuss’s 115th birthday, we read “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and three cute boys, joined my daughter and I in creating hot air balloon suncatchers. They turned out awesome!
I love creating lessons with crafts that are inspired by children’s books. They help encourage children to read, makes the stories come to life and its a way too make learning fun!
- Cut out little squares from tissue paper
- Use a bowl or other circular object to trace a circle onto contact paper
- Let kids decorate their balloon with the tissue squares
- Take another piece of contact paper and stick it together with the decorated piece
- Cut a pipe cleaner in half and place in the middle of the clear contact sheets
- Cut a piece of cardstock to size and let the kids color and decorate it
- Hot glue the pipe cleaner to the inside of the contact sheets and to the back of the cardstock
- Use double stick tape to attach to the windows
Thank you for reading!
