DLTK's Crafts for Kids
- a printer
- something to colour with,
- a piece of paper (I prefer construction paper)
- wool, string or ribbon (4 short lengths)
- pictures of people from photos, handdrawings or
magazines (in proportion to the ballon
- strawberry basket or small box (a square kleenex
box with the top removed will work).
- Print out the template.
- Colour the balloon as appropriate and cut it out.
- Pick out some pictures of people and cut
- I like to use photos of the kids... They get a
kick out of seeing themselves in the balloon.
- Hand drawn pictures, pictures from colouring books
or pictures from magazines/junk mail will all work too.
- Glue the people into the strawberry basket (so it
looks like they are riding in the balloon).
- Tie the lengths of ribbon/wool to the 4 corners
of the strawberry basket. Glue or tape the other end of each piece to the balloon
(or punch a hole and tie to the balloon).
- You can also tie/glue a fifth piece of string to
the top of the balloon to hang the craft from the ceiling.
- If you choose the Black and White template, try
printing on coloured construction paper.
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
