Plastic and Yarn Picture Frame
Make this picture frame from a piece of thick, flexible, clear plastic (acetate) It's available at craft stores, fabric stores, and hardware stores. This is a great project for elementary school age children who want to frame their school picture! It's also great for a Mother's Day or Father's Day gift or as a Christmas tree ornament. For each Frame you will need:


thick, flexible, clear plastic a photo to frame a hole punch yarn, twine, or other thick thread scissors glue stickers (optional) thick needle (optional)

Choose a photo to frame. Write info about the photo on its back (like the date, people in the photo, the location, the occasion, etc.). You'll be able to read this after the frame is done. Choose a shape for your frame. Cut 2 pieces of plastic; one for the front and one for the back of the frame. Make sure the plastic is about 1 inch larger than the photo on all sides.

All sorts of shapes look good. To cut an oval or heart shape, draw half the shape on a folded piece of paper, then cut it. Use this template for cutting the plastic.

Put the 2 pieces of plastic together (without the photograph). Using a hole punch, make a series of holes all around the edge of the frame.

Place the photo on one piece of plastic and position it where it will look best. You may need to trim the photo. A dab of glue on the back of the photo will keep it in place.

Decorate with stickers or labels.

Put the second piece of plastic on top of the first, matching the holes exactly. Using yarn, twine, embroidery floss, or other thick thread, "sew" up the edges of the frame. Older children can use an upholstery needle. For younger ones, a bit of nail polish put on the end of the string (let it dry first) will act like a needle. Attach a short loop of yarn for hanging the frame.

Ear of Corn Place Cards
Make festive place cards that picture an ear of corn. These simple-to-make table decorations are great for any celebration. Supplies needed needed:



Heavy-duty construction paper or card stock (green + another color) Unpopped popping corn (about a spoonful of unpopped corn for each place card White glue Scissors A pencil, marker or pen

Cut a piece of construction paper that is about 5 x 6 inches (use any color but green).

Fold the paper in half so that you have a rectangle that is 5x3 inches. Unfold it. This will be the place card. Using a piece of folded green construction paper, cut an oval with pointed ends -- it should be a little smaller than 1/2 of your place card (about 3 inches by 1 1/2 inches). You should now have 2 green ovals. Cut one of the ovals in half the long way.

Glue the green oval to the bottom half of the unfolded place card.

Squeeze a blob of white glue onto the green oval, leaving an edge of about 1/4 inch without glue around the green oval.

Sprinkle unpopped popcorn (about a spoonful) on the glue. Push the popcorn into the glue.

第 2 页 共 64 页

Put a line of glue over the right half of the corn. and under the bottom right half.

Glue on the half ovals of green paper (to be the husks of an ear of corn) at a slight angle (as shown in the picture). Only the edges of these half ovals will be glued -- the rest will stick up over the corn, looking like a partly-opened corn husk. Let the glue set (this will probably take at least overnight) - if the glue isn't dry completely when you use the card, the glue will slowly leak down the place card (we found this out the hard way)! Write the name of a guest on each of the place cards and put each one by a place setting. You can now use your ear of corn place cards at any celebration table.

Treasure Hunt Activity
This treasure hunt activity is great for birthday parties. The children follow a series of simple clues to find a treasure (a bag of candy or tiny toys). This type of hunt is for children who can read. For older, more sophisticated kids, you can easily make the clues more challenging (see below)! A treasure hunt takes a while for an adult to set up (give yourself a lot of time to plan it out and place the clues) but the kids love it. Supplies needed needed:


A few pieces of construction paper (different colors) A printer Scissors Tape A treasure for each group of children (candies or little toys) A small plastic bag or a treasure chest for each team (you can make them) Optional: A tiny compass for each team (only for advanced treasure hunters)

Treasure bag -A plastic sandwich bag filled with goodies.

Decide how many teams you have (maximum 2-3 per team). Then either pack up a tiny treasure bag for each team (plastic sandwich bags packed with candy) or make one larger treasure chest that will be shared by everyone.

Go to a treasure chest craft (made from a shoebox).

Decide if you want the hunt to be inside, outside, or both. Next, scout out the treasure hunting area for good places to hide the tiny clues (each clue will be on a tiny slip of paper that is folded up and will be taped to its hiding place). Make a list of possible hiding places (like under a table or in the flower bush by the back door). Good places to hide clues include the bottoms of chairs and other furniture, on bookshelves (don't tape clues to the visible surface of wooded furniture or you can damage it). Make sure to keep the clues away from breakable objects or dangerous things (like thorny bushes)! Roughly 10 clues will keep early readers busy for quite a while (the time depends on how hard the clues are!).The number of clues you need depends on the age of the children and how long you want the hunt to last. Write a set of clues, or print out and modify one of our sets of clues (simple - for early readers or more complex - for older kids). Remember that the last clue will be the place that the loot is hidden. For older kids, make the clues a little harder by scrambling some of the words, give rhyming words (for example, "In the Go to a sampling of living room, look under a piece of furniture that rhymes with simple treasure hare."), using simple codes, or simply odd clues (for hunt clues. example, to find a clue taped to a bicycle, the clue could

Go to a sampling of more complicated treasure hunt clues.

read, "Look under something in the garage that is two-tired."). For more examples, see our sample clue sheet. For an even more challenging hunt, give each team a small compass and use navigation in your clues (for example, "Start at the front door. Walk north for 20 steps. The clue is in the bush in front of you."). Print one copy of the clues for each team. Use a different color for each team. Make sure the colors are very different (like white, red, blue, and green); using colors that are too close to each other (for example, light green and yellow) can result in people mistakenly taking each others clues --this results in utter confusion! For each team, cut each clue out -- each one will be a long strip of paper. Organize the clues so that the final clue is where the treasure will be (use a tray, shallow box, or other flat surface to hold the clues while you organize them and distribute them around the house). Work on one team's clues at a time. If there is more than one team of treasure seekers, repeat the process multiple times, but shuffle the order of the clues each time (if each team's clues are in the same order they can just follow each other around). Start hiding the clues, working backwards, from the last clue to the first. Begin by placing the loot in its hiding place (as determined by the last clue). In the example to the left, the treasure would be hidden by the window. ---> Now fold up the final clue (the clue that tells where the treasure is hidden) and hide it where the next-to-last clue says to (you may need tape to secure the clue to its hiding place). In the example to the left, the final clue ("Look by the window.") would be hidden on the shelf.

Now, work your way backwards, hiding each clue in the location listed in the previous clue. Keep hiding clues until there is only one left -- this will be the clue that starts off one team of hunters. Repeat this for each team. When it is time to begin the hunt, first let the hunters know the rules of the treasure hunt. Some useful rules are:




Stay in the treasure hunt area. Let them know what areas of the house and/or yard they will be searching (and which areas are NOT in the treasure hunt and are off limits). Make sure that you only take you own clues (they are color coded). If you find someone else's clue, leave it where it is and don't tell anyone.

Then give each team their first clue, and they will be off! You now have an amazing treasure hunt that will keep the kids hunting for quite a while!

MAKE A WEARABLE MEDAL
This is a very easy way to make wearable medals. The medals are great for awarding the winners (and runner-ups) at children's party games. SUPPLIES NEEDED NEEDED:


One metal juice can top for each medal Ribbon (about 2 feet for each medal) Glue (hot-glue works great) Glitter glue (or glue and glitter).

Cut a two foot length of ribbon (any type of ribbon will do. Trim the edges nicely. Glue a metal juice can top to the middle of a two-foot length of ribbon. Hot glue works well (and fast). Using glitter glue (or a creamy glue like Elmer's), write the award's message on the juice can top. Some nice messages include: #1 Birthday Girl (Boy), I'm a Winner, Gold Medal, Silver Medal, each of the children's names, etc. If you're using plain glue, now dust the glue with glitter, then tilt and tap the top to get rid of the excess glitter. Let the glue dry overnight (or longer). When the glue is completely dry, tie the ends of the ribbon together in a knot. Your medal is ready to present to a child!

2 pieces of paper (2 different colors of card-stock works great) paste scissors Crayons and/or markers

Fold a piece of paper in half. Cut a line about 2 inches long (5 cm) about the middle of the crease.

Fold back each of the flaps to make 2 triangles.



Open up the card. Lay it down like a v.



Push one of the triangles up and pinch the edges together above the card. Repeat with the other triangle.



Close the card and push down on the folds to make them well-creased. When opened, you have a pop-up beak.



Fold another piece of paper in half (a different color looks great). Glue this new card to the outside of your pop-up card. Don't glue near the beak area or it won't open! Let the glue dry.

Draw a bird around the beak and finish decorating your card.

For variations on this card, don't cut a straight line - cut a wavy line or a zigzag for a scary jagged beak. You can even make more than one beaks for 2 birds.

Pressed and Dried Flowers
Stationery and Cards Craft You can press and dry delicate flowers and then use them to make beautiful cards and stationery. Supplies needed needed:


Fresh, delicate flowers Coffee filters (optional) Phone book Good quality paper (to make the card or stationery) Scissors Glue Tweezers A brush

Pick some delicate flowers and leaves - sturdy flowers and thick leaves do not work so well and take a lot longer to dry than the delicate ones. Some plants that work well are California poppies, buttercups, tiny daisies, clover, ferns, pansies, and thin-petaled blooms.

Press each bloom/leaf in a thick telephone book. Some flowers will leave a bit of color on the pages when you're done, so ask your parent's permission before using a book of theirs. You can protect the pages of the book and speed up the drying process by pressing the flowers between flattened coffee filters. The coffee filters absorb a lot of the moisture as the flowers are pressed. It takes at least a week or two to completely dry out and press a flower - bigger blooms take longer.

When the plants are dry, carefully remove them from the book. Arrange them on your paper in an artistic manner. You may have to trim some stems with a scissors.

Remove the plants, remembering where the plants were so you can put them back later. Brush a thin layer of glue on the paper where the dried plants were.

Carefully put the plants back in place. This can be difficult and using a tweezers to place them on the glue can be helpful (adult help may be needed at this stage). Make sure all the plant material is touching the glue and lying flat on the paper. Let the glue dry completely. You now have beautiful stationery or cards.

Have an adult mix the plaster of Paris. Before starting, collect a large container to mix the plaster in and a wide container (like an aluminum pie plate or a plastic lid) to mold the handprint in. Have an adult mix a small amount of Plaster of Paris with water in a sturdy container (a disposable plastic container is the easiest) - the plaster should be stiff but creamy. Do not mix the plaster with your hands - use a stick as a stirrer. Wear plastic gloves to protect your hands. Do not breathe in the plaster dust. Pour the plaster into the flat container. Have the child quickly make a handprint (or a footprint) in the plaster. Wash the child's hand immediately afterwards (prolonged exposure to plaster can burn the skin). Before the Plaster of Paris hardens, push a partly unfolded paper clip into the plaster (this is how you will hang it on the wall) - or use a straw to make a hole in the plaster. The plaster will be completely dry in about a day, but you can take it out of the molding container after about 20 minutes. Don't forget to write the name of the child, the date, and the age of the child on the plaster using a permanent marker.

Handprint, Photo Blossom Craft
This is a simple keepsake craft made from a child's photo, a child's handprint, and construction paper. Supplies needed needed:


A piece of light-colored construction paper (white, pale blue, pale yellow, etc.) - for the backgound One piece of brightly-colored construction paper - for the flower petals A photo of the child Scissors Glue Green tempera paint A brush (or just use your finger) Pen or pencil

Cut a circle around the head of a picture of a child (this will be the center of the flower.

Cut a flower shape out of colorful construction paper. Make sure that the flower is a bit bigger than the round picture of the child, but small enough so that it will fit on the paper.

Glue the paper flower towards the top of a piece of paper.

Using green tempera paint, draw a stem for your flower.

Have the child make two green handprints near the base of the stem - these will be the flower's leaves.

Glue the picture of the child to the center of the flower.

Write the child's name (and the date, if you wish) on the paper. You now have an adorable keepsake of your child.

An old cigar box (or other small, lidded box) Mementos of the year (like awards, ribbons, a paper handprint, photos, drawings, playbills, ticket stubs, pressed flowers, clippings, hand-written poems, scraps of fabric, sea shells, trinkets, etc.) Glue Paint, permanent markers, and/or glitter

Family Tree
Make a child's family tree from a small tree branch and construction paper. You can acquaint your child with their ancestry by making this simple and pretty family tree. Supplies needed needed: Sky blue and green construction paper Crayons or markers Scissors Some yarn A hole punch Styrofoam or paper cup A lump of play dough or other clay Glue stick

Find a twig with many branches. Put a lump of clay in the bottom of a paper or styrofoam cup. Insert the twig securely so that it remains upright.

Cut out big leaves from the green construction paper. Each leaf will represent a person in the child's family and should be big enough to write that person's name on the leaf. Cut enough leaves for each of the child's siblings, parents, and grandparents (or more!). Write the name of each person on their leaf. You might want to include the relative's relationship to the child, like "Grandma Joan Smith." Punch a hole on the end of each leaf.

Tie the leaves to the tree. The child's generation goes at the top of the tree, the parents at the second level, and the grandparents at the bottom. For an alternative project, use photos, and paste them on the leaves. Or use cut-outs of leaves, fruit (like apples), and/or flowers to represent the people.

Paper Family Tree

Sky blue and green construction paper Crayons, tempera paint, or markers Scissors Glue stick

Draw a large tree with many branches.

Cut out leaves from the green construction paper or use leaf rubbings that you cut out. Each leaf will represent a person in the child's family and should be big enough to write that person's name on the leaf. Cut enough leaves for each of the child's siblings, parents, and grandparents (or more!). Write the name of each person on their leaf. You might want to include the relative's relationship to the child, like "Grandma Joan Smith." Glue the leaves to the tree.
