I decided to do a kids table this year for my sweet nieces who are 4 and 2. They will sit at the card table that will be covered with butchers block paper. I've got some Thanksgiving themed coloring pages that I downloaded from the internet for them to color along with some Michael's dollar store finds for them to do. I bought crayons from the dollar store and made some cute little Pilgrim hats to store the crayons in.
I have been going with a 'use what you've got' philosophy for fall decorating and planning this year. In that theme I am using what I've got on hand for this project.
I've seen several 'Pins' for this project, all using black Solo Cups. I didn't have black on hand but I did have Pink and Blue, so that is what I'll use.
For this easy project you'll need:
Scissors - I used a regular pair and a fancy cutting pair
A pen or pencil
Card stock paper or fun foam (I used fun foam as I had it). Colors of your choice
1 sheet of black construction paper
1 sheet of yellow construction paper
Solo Cups or any kind of plastic cup
X-Acto or a craft knife
Step 1 -
Cut out your base. Using the CD as a template: Place the CD on the fun foam or card stock and trace it with your pencil/pen. Then cut the circle out. I used fancy scissors but you can use regular ones.
Now cut the strip into equal parts to make squares. I made each square 2 inches. Cut them out.
So you can put things in the 'hat' you need to cut the top - or the bottom - of the cup off. I used an X-Acto knife to start then regular scissors to cut the bottom of the cup off.
Step 5 - Now add the buckle. Glue the yellow buckle overtop the black strip.
Step 6 - Run a bead of glue to the top (the end you'd normally drink out of) of the cup. Then secure it to the round craft paper or fun foam.
Let dry overnight or for a couple of hours.
I put crayons in mine and they will sit on the kids table with some of the crafts from the dollar spot and the coloring pages that I got for them.
Thanks for stopping by. This year has gone so fast, I just don't know where the time has gone. Christmas is almost here again. I swear I just put all of that away last month!
Future things to look for in November -
