We live in New England. It is not uncommon to be playing in the snow one day and then to be outside in shorts the next. The weather can be crazy and unpredictable. As much as we sometimes like to complain about the ever-changing weather, I would not change it for a thing. There is something to love about each season. My favorite is watching the trees. I love the gorgeous colors that the fall brings and the haunting beauty of a bare tree getting ready for the winter. Right now, we are excited to see the buds on the trees preparing to sprout for the spring. We love each and every season. Because of this, four season crafts are a favorite of ours. Here is a fun four season craft with a twist (literally).
My daughter is getting into the Easter spirit. We made some Easter printables a couple of weeks ago & she loved coloring & painting them, especially the eggs. She has been drawing up a storm lately & her main subject has been Easter eggs.
We just came home from a wonderful family vacation. While we were away I was surprised at how much our daughter missed our projects. Whenever we were back in the hotel room, Mai would want to make a craft. While I did not bring craft supplies, I did bring drawing materials to entertain her. These fulfilled her need to create.
Today was our first day home & Mai was eager to jump back into arts & crafts. She asked if we could make chameleons. My husband came up with a great idea to make our chameleons on wax paper,, so that they would actually work like a chameleon & change color with their environment. What a clever man I married.
Wax Paper Chameleon
We drew out the chameleon on a piece of wax paper. I have attached a traceable. You may put this under the wax paper & trace it out.
Cut out the wax tracing & place on a foam sheet. Trace around your cutout & cut out the middle portion of the tracing.
Glue a sheet of wax paper to the foam sheet & trim off any overlapping edges.
Use the original wax paper cutout to trace out the chameleon’s features. We used a Sharpie to trace & colored markers to add a bit of color.
Lay out different colored construction paper & place you chameleon over the top & roll over the different colors.
