Time for another installment of our toddler series, a collaborative series of posts between myself and Kristan of Munchkin and Bean. Last week and this week we’re talking about 4th of July activities. If you missed our 4th of July Sensory Bin and our Red, White, and Blue Flower Science then be sure to go back and check them out.
This week we’re making president stick puppets. Supplies needed: popsicle sticks, coins with president faces on them, card stock, scissors, duct tape, and paint.
Start out by cutting small shirts and hats out of the cardstock, one of each per puppet.
Use a bit of duct tape to secure the coins and cardstock clothes to the popsicle stick.
Once they are assembled, you can paint them. We decided to have a bit of fun and make scented watercolor paint. Our recipe is super easy!
One packet of Kool-Aide in the desired color, 1/4 cup of water, stir until dissolved and paint!
SunnyGirl loves using scented paints!
Be sure to hop on over to Munchkin and Bean to see what sort of 4th of July fun they have up their sleeve this week!
