Fun Kid Craft: Googly Eyes Monogram

We’re back this week with another craft for kids using the Creative Play Kit! The kids had a blast making this one because it involved googly eyes. I have no idea what makes these little plastic pieces so entertaining but my kids go nuts for them. That’s what makes them great for creating fun bedroom décor that kids will love hanging on the wall. Even better is that this googly eyes monogram is super easy to make. Older kids will have no trouble and younger children will do great with a little guidance from mom.

Kids have blast making this googly eyes monogram! It is a great craft that creates fun bedroom décor kids will love hanging on the wall.

Step 1

Have each child choose a color of construction paper for the monogram.

Step 2

Next, draw each child’s first initial in block lettering in the center of the construction paper.

Tips:

  • Mom, you may want to do this part for kiddos.
  • Use a lighter colored pencil to draw your letters. I used white on the paper so that there isn’t an obvious outline on the artwork.

Step 3

Next, give each child the monogrammed construction paper, a glue stick, and googly eyes.

Step 4

Have kids begin gluing the eyes inside of the monogram starting with the largest sized eyes.

Tip:

  • Place the eyes at random over the monogram. You want them to be spread out.

Step 5

After the large eyes have been added begin filling in more of the monogram with the medium eyes.

It is that simple to create custom art for kids’ rooms. They will love making this googly eye monogram and love showing it to family and friends. I do recommend having each child choose one style of googly eyes for a more cohesive look (it will also preempt any arguments during creation). Too many different styles can make the monogram look messy. Luckily there are 4 different styles in the Creative Play Kit which makes sticking with one easy. If you haven’t checked it out yet, don’t forget about the awesome Kids Behavior System that we made last week. The kids love earning their M&M treats and I’m loving the calmer days. See you back here next week for another fun kid’s craft!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
Summer break can be a blast but it can also be a head-ache. This DIY kids behavior system is perfect for encouraging great behavior during the summer.

DIY Kids Behavior System

Summer break can be a blast. It can also be a head-ache with all of the kids home and schedules thrown out of whack. That is why the first craft in our summer series is this DIY kids behavior system. Nearly all of the materials come in the Michael’s Creative Play Kit which you can read about on Bust Summer Boredom with Weekly Crafts. If you already got your kit then you are ready to get on to the tutorial. Let’s get ready to rock your summer parenting!

Materials

  • Craft Stick People
  • Construction Paper
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • 2 Pipe Cleaners
  • Colored Pencils
  • Clear Tape
  • Empty Drink Container (I used a Crystal Light container)

Step 1

Tear a small stack of construction paper into fourths.

Step 3

Allow kids to decorate or dress their craft stick people.

Note:

  • My 8 year old carefully traced his craft stick outline to make a shirt and pants for his. Then he drew the face and shoes with colored pencils. The 4 year old wanted to cover every part of hers with different pieces of paper. The 3 year old cried the whole time because he couldn’t have googly eyes. Hopefully, that illustrates the diversity of this process. Lol!

Step 4

While the kids are decorating their stick people, clean your drink container.

Step 5

Next, cut a rectangular opening in the top.

Tips:

  • Use a very sharp box cutter to do this.
  • I recommend scoring where you want to make your cuts first. I didn’t which is why I ended up with a jagged cut-out.

Step 6

Cut a strip of red construction paper that is roughly as wide as a third of your drink container’s length.

Step 8

Take your lid off of your container and cover the right third of your container with the red construction paper strip. Secure it with tape.

Tip:

  • Start in an area so that your overlap doesn’t fall over the opening on top.

Step 9

Cut through the paper covering your opening and fold down on the inside.

Step 12

Lastly, wrap your yellow paper around the center of your container and secure with tape.

Tip:

  • I secured the end of all of my strips to the container with tape before wrapping them. You don’t have to do that with the red and green but you need to do that for the yellow strip.

Tip:

  • You may want to label the stick people to help you keep them straight until you learn whose is whose.

How to Use the DIY Kids Behavior System

The behavior system works as a visual indicator for kids. If their thick people are in the green then their behavior is good. If they get a warning for bad behavior the sticks go to yellow. Red means that they lost out on any reward for the day.

Rewards

Daily rewards should be something small but still incentive for good behavior. You can use candy, such as Skittles or M&M’s, or extra game/TV time. Stickers or temporary tattoos also work very well for younger kids.

 

Summer break can be a blast but it can also be a head-ache. This DIY kids behavior system is perfect for encouraging great behavior during the summer.

This DIY kids behavior system is perfect for encouraging great behavior during the summer. We have added in the addition that you can earn your way back to green from yellow with exceptional behavior. However, once you hit red, you have lost the chance of a reward for the day. Another option is a bigger reward for ending the day on green and a smaller reward for ending on yellow. Choose the method that works best for your family.

Step 7

After your sheets are filled out, break your glow sticks and add your connectors.

Tip:

  • Try to keep like connectors grouped together to make them easier to hide for the game.

Step 8

Now, hide your glow sticks in the places that correspond with your hints.

Step 9

Last, give each player a scavenger hunt sheet and let the game begin.

Some Last Tips:

  • Keep your connectors because you can totally re-use them in the future. That’s why we put the tape on the connectors instead of the glow sticks. Store them in a bag along with extra printables.
  • You can use the same key for multiple games but updating with the new locations. There are multiple lines available but you can also use white-out if it fills up.
  • Save time and money by playing the scavenger hunt with teams instead of individual players. This allows you to cover fewer connectors and use fewer glow sticks for each game.

So what is your take? Does this glow-in-the-dark scavenger hunt rocket to the top of your favorite glow games too? Don’t forget to print out extra sheets to take with you on vacation. It’s a great game to pull out if you get stuck in the hotel room. You can also turn it into an adventure and use it on a camping trip. Take a night hike full of glowy fun one night and then celebrate with some delicious s’mores. That’s definitely a camping win-win.

This is the perfect game for those frustrating mom days! DIY glow can toss lets you whip a Frisbee at cans for the explicit purpose of knocking them down.

Step 1

Cover each of your clean cans in a different color of acrylic paint. I used red, yellow, blue, green, orange, and purple paint each mixed with white to brighten them up.

Step 5

Allow the paint to dry.

Tip:

  • Fabric paint will take longer to dry than your acrylic paint.

Step 6

After your glow paint has dried, spray your cans with clear engine paint. This will make sure that the paint stands up to repeatedly being hit with your glow Frisbee.

How to Play Glow Can Toss

Set Up: Align your glow cans in a pyramid. Be sure to charge them (and your glow Frisbee) with light before playing. Next, mark spots on the ground for the different levels. Spots should be marked at the following intervals:

  • 3 Feet
  • 6 Feet
  • 9 Feet
  • 12 Feet

Game Play: The game is played by players taking turns tossing the glow Frisbee at the cans from each distance. The cans should be reset after each toss. For example, player 1 tosses the Frisbee from 3 feet away. The player gets a point for every can that is knocked down. The cans are then reset and player 2 tosses the Frisbee from 3 feet. Play continues in this way until each player has tossed the Frisbee from each distance.

Winning the Game: The winner of the game is the player with the most points at the end of the last round.

 

This is the perfect game for those frustrating mom days! DIY glow can toss lets you whip a Frisbee at cans for the explicit purpose of knocking them down.

DIY glow can toss is also fantastic because there is no limit to the number of players. While it might take a while to get through the rounds you could essentially have a hundred people playing. Make a couple of sets and you are ready to keep people entertained at parties, family reunions, or summer camps. Pair it with some of the other glow games like glow stick tag and giant backyard glow pong for an awesome, over-the-top summer bash. Don’t forget to check back next week for the sixth glow game in our summer series!

How is your summer going so far? We have been crafting up a storm and truly enjoying some unstructured days. If you read yesterday’s post then you already know that we are in full Father’s Day mode. Today’s tutorial continues the trend with another awesome DIY gift idea. Don’t worry we’re taking a break from tomorrow with a new glow-in-the-dark game. Until then, though, find out how to turn kids artwork into coaster sets with this easy tutorial. We worked out all of the kinks for you so that you and the kids can get it done without the ups and downs that we experienced.

When we started creating out coasters the plan was to have the kids draw directly on the coasters. That worked great for the youngest who mostly just scribbles anyway, but the middle one struggled with it. In fact, she got so frustrated that she scribbled out her frustration. You can check out her angry scribbles in the photo below. That frustration is what inspired me to transfer images she drew on paper to the wooden coasters, instead. Live and learn…

Step 1

Fold a piece of paper into fourths and give it to your child along with a pencil. Let him or her know only to draw on the fourths. This will help make sure that the drawings fit on the coasters.

Step 1

First, give each child a blank koozie.

 

Step 2

Next, open up your fabric markers and divvy them up between the kids.

Tip:

  • I recommend using at least 2 sets of markers to prevent fighting over colors.

Step 3

Now, let your kids go nuts decorating the can koozies.

Notes:

  • These markers hold up to my rough and tough little man which is awesome!
  • While the older kids will take their time the younger ones will fly through their decorating. If they finish before the other kids, allow them to move onto decorating their tie cards.

  • Bonus Tip: be sure to point out which end is the bottom of the koozie. I did not and you can see that baby girl decorated one of hers’ upside down. I think I’m just going to tell Papa that it’s so he can see the design when he takes a drink. Lol!

Step 4

After the kids have finished decorating their can koozies, label the bottom of each one with his or her first initial and the year.

Step 5

Lastly, throw them in the dryer on the highest heat setting for 30 minutes to set the designs.

Tips:

  • Do not wash them before setting the designs.
  • Don’t put anything else in the dryer with your koozies when you set them.

Father’s Day Gift Bag Materials

Step 1

Give each kid a tie card. If you have more gifts to give than kids decorating, give the kids more ties to color. You will need one tie for each gift bag.

Tips:

  • We used crayons on ours and the coating on the cards made it very difficult. That is why I recommended markers in the materials list.

Step 2

Push the metal end on the elastic cord through the pre-punched hole on the top of the card.

Step 6 (Optional)

After putting your gifts in the bags, top each one with 2-3 pieces of tissue paper.

Fallout Guy Can Koozie

My husband is super into the Fallout games. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it is a post-apocalyptic shooter game. I personally don’t get the draw of it but then again, he doesn’t understand my love of the Sims. He loves it when we find merchandise with the little dude on it. That’s why I decided to surprise him with a hand-drawn one on a can koozie. You can check out the quick photo tutorial below to see how I made it. Keep in mind that I free handed the drawing so there is no pattern.

It’s finally here! Summer break has arrived and we are thrilled! We have the freedom to run to the zoo when the weather is nice. The pools have opened their gates.

Bust summer boredom with weekly crafts using the Creative Play Kit from Michaels. Please note that this is not a sponsored post.

Glow Balloon Tennis

Yay! It’s time for another awesome outdoor glow game. This week we’re playing glow balloon tennis and it is just as much fun to play during the day as it is at night. You will want to have a lot of balloons prepped before you play. As players get more into the game and play rougher, the balloons will start breaking. If it becomes a problem, pull out the wiffle balls from your DIY Giant Backyard Glow Pong game. Change out your balloons for the wiffle balls and players can go nuts.

Step 4

Tip:

  • Do not blow the balloon up to full capacity. Only make it large enough to hold the glow stick.

How to Play Glow Balloon Tennis

Start by breaking into 2 teams of 2 players. One team is frogs and the other team is ladybugs. Next, determine the center line and have one team on either side of it. You can mark the center with a chair if you need a visual representation. To play, one team serves the balloon across the center line. This doesn’t need to be done any certain distance from the center. The receiving team must get the balloon back across the center in 3 hits. Additionally, the same player cannot hit the balloon twice in a row. A point is scored any time the returning team fails to get the balloon back over the center in 3 hits. The first team to score 10 points wins.

Who doesn’t love batting a balloon around? Glow balloon tennis will have your family laughing and having a blast together this summer. Planning on a large party or gathering? You can easily add more players by adding more fly swatters. All of the same rules apply regardless of the number of players. That makes it a fantastically versatile game!

Arrange Buckets

The way that you arrange your buckets will depend on how many you are using. The buckets should be divided into 2 equal groups and arranged as outlined below. Place your groups 10-20 feet apart, the prior for small children and the latter for groups of adults.

  • 8 Buckets: Arrange 4 buckets in a diamond for each group. From the bottom: 1 Bucket, 2 Buckets, 1 Bucket
  • 10 Buckets: Arrange 5 buckets in a plus sign pattern in each group. From the bottom: 1 Bucket, 3 Buckets, 1 Bucket
  • 12 Buckets: Arrange 6 buckets in each group in a triangle pattern. From the bottom: 3 Buckets, 2 Buckets, 1 Bucket

Game Play

Divide into teams and take turns trying to toss the wiffle balls into the buckets. Each time a ball lands in a bucket, that bucket is removed from play. Balls can be blocked by the defending team but team members cannot move in front of the buckets to do so. Also, if a bucket is knocked over during a block, it is still removed from play. The first team to eliminate all of their opponents’ buckets wins.
