Cupcake Liner Turkey Craft

Cupcake Liner Turkey - Thanksgiving crafts for kids

I swore to myself that I was done with turkey crafts, but I could not resist doing just on more. My daughter wanted to make a craft out of cupcake liners and by craft she meant she wanted to cut them all up with her safety scissors. I had a different idea in mind for the wrappers.

Cupcake Liner Turkey

Paint a paper bowl brown & let it dry.

Cut a peanut like shape out of brown construction paper. Glue on googly eyes & cut a beak & wattle out of construction paper and glue those on as well.

Flip the bowl over & glue different colored cupcake liners that are folded in half to the back of the bowl. Fan them out half way around the bowl.

Flip the bowl back over & let the glue dry.

Cut out feet & glue them to the bottom of the bowl. Glue the body to the front of the bowl & you are finished.

My daughter & I have been enjoying making fall crafts over the past few weeks. We have been making beautiful autumn trees & pumpkin crafts. We have been loving every minute of our fall crafts, but the past few hot days have snapped me back to summer.

My little sun diva & I spent a lot of time in the sun & by the pool this weekend. She wore her Frozen bathing suit & rocked her favorite shades. Those pink shades inspired our latest craft.

Cupcake Liner Elephant & Mouse

Cupcake Liner Elephant

My daughter has been on an elephant kick for the last few days. She has been drawing pictures of them & asked if we could make elephant crafts together.

My daughter likes to call the shots on our crafts projects sometimes. She had specific ideas in mind for our project. Our elephant needed foam tusks & pink for the inside of the ears and she insisted that trunk had to be made out of a pipe cleaner.

Pink tissue paper

Directions:

Cut two circles smaller than a cupcake liner out of pink tissue paper. Glue them to the inside of two cupcake liners.

Jelly Fish Crafts

Cupcake Liner Jelly Fish Craft

For the past few weeks we have been preparing our house to put it on the market. We have been packing for weeks & trying to get all of the clutter out our home. I don’t think I realized just how much craft stuff Mai & I actually had until I started trying to box it all up. I have been having a hard time throwing any of it away & an even harder time picking which items have to get packed away & put into storage until we move. Right now I am just trying to use any loose pieces of craft material or pre-painted or pre-cut items. Mai wanted to work with cupcake liners and make jelly monsters. She had a very specific idea in mind.

While she created her jelly monster, I worked on a different kind of jelly creature.

Cupcake Liner Jelly Fish

Directions:

Cut a wavy pattern into the bottom of a cupcake liner.

IMG_4862

Cut 4 pipe cleaners in half. Curl the ends of all 8 pieces.

IMG_4861

Place the liner on a piece of paper & arrange the pipe cleaners underneath. Use a liberal amount of glue & glue the pipe cleaners to the paper. Do not worry if not every section of pipe cleaner touches the paper, when the glue dries the cleaners will hold. You may weight down your pipe cleaners while they dry if you want them to lay flat.

Add googly eyes to finish off your cute little sea creature.

Cupcake Liner Jelly Fish Craft

We had several egg carton sections that Mai had painted last week for a different craft. We used those to make another jelly fish craft.

Egg Carton Jelly Fish

Directions:

Paint a section of egg carton & let dry. Poke a hole through the center of the egg carton section.

IMG_4865

Poke a string through the hole & tie a knot on the inside of the section.

IMG_4868

Similar to the craft above, cut pipe cleaners in half &  & curl the ends. Glue the pieces of pipe cleaner to the inside of the egg carton. Let the glue dry & add googly eyes.

Cupcake Liner Whale Craft

cupcake liner whale craft - cute summer arts & craft project for the kids

 

This weekend we had fun making a whale diaper cake for my cousin’s baby shower. Mai was very excited watching me construct the cake & she was even more excited to see all of the other whale themed gifts at the shower. “I like whales too! They are my favorite.” At least for this weekend that might be true. Since whales are her new favorite, we decided to continue with the whale theme & made a cupcake liner whale craft.

We started with 2 cupcake liners in a light shade of blue. We glued a full liner & then one that was cut into a squared off crescent shape.

Glue a darker shade of blue over the lighter as shown.
