We are very excited about the launch of our new book ‘Farmer Pete Has Stinky Feet’. We are thrilled with all of the amazing feedback that we have been receiving on our sweet and funny tale of a farmer with a stinky problem. To celebrate, we have a series of farm themed arts and crafts coming up inspired by the book.
With all of the snow we’ve been getting, it has been driving everyone a little stir crazy. Mommy has been racking her brain for fun activities to do with the munchkin while we are snowbound. Mai flipped over one of her bowls the other day & told me that it was a turtle shell. She inspired this evenings crafts with her clever observation. We are always painting & crafting with paper plates, but what about paper bowls for a little more dimension?
What you will need:
Construction paper or foam boards (we used foam)
Paint & brushes
Pen or marker
Directions for the turtle:
Lay your bowl on top of your paper/foam board draw out your head,eyes & your arms to a desired size.
Cut out your shapes.
Set your shapes aside.
Paint your bowl green.
Draw lines in a darker shade of green over the top to give it a look of a turtle shell.
Mai painted her own too.
Let your little artist add glue to the turtle pieces
Glue your pieces together & watch your little one cheer with excitement at her masterpiece. Let dry well before moving. Use pressure if needed to hold pieces in place while drying.
We had so much fun making our turtle, here are some other animal crafts we came up with.
