My daughter loves cartoons. She would stay parked in front of the television all day, but I limit her screen time. There are only a few shows that she watches. Her favorite shows are ‘Stella & Sam’ & ‘Julius Jr.’ Since I monitor her television time, it always surprises me when she knows so many characters from other cartoons. Last night she kept talking to me about Percy. I did not know who Percy was. It turned out that Percy was a friend of Thomas the train. “Percy is so cute.” she told me. I was not familiar with Percy, but I know Thomas. I asked my daughter if she wanted to make Thomas & Percy crafts & of course she jumped at it. She chose to make Percy, so I made Thomas. We chose to make paper plate crafts. Here’s how.
What you will need:
Construction paper in blue, black, red & green.
Paint a paper plate in silver & let it dry.
Cut out the shapes for the bodies, eyes, mouths, lights & smoke stacks. (Here were all the pieces used to form Thomas)
Draw in the eyeballs & any details with magic marker.
I cut out all the pieces for Mai’s Percy as well.
Glue all the pieces together to form your characters.
Draw in nose, mouth & cheeks.
As you can see Mai was very proud of her creation.
Mommy was proud of hers too.
Since we were on a Thomas kick, we had to squeeze in just one more craft.
Footprint Thomas The Train Craft
Paint your child’s feet as shown.
