Time for Tots - Activity #13


Hello everyone! It’s time for another tot activity on Beautiful Girlhood!

Let’s celebrate warmer weather with the tots!

The Three Blind Mice {Beth age seven, Gabrielle age four and Rebekah age two} and I made paper bag kites.

What you need:

Powder paint
Cold glue
Paper collage materials (Pompoms,
Streamers, Feathers, etc.)
Large paper bags
Paint brushes
Hole puncher
Paper ring reinforcements

1. Punch holes on each of the four corners of the bag (at least 3cm from the edge of the bag). Put a paper ring reinforcement on each hole.

 2.  Cut two pieces of string to a length of about 80cm.  Tie each end into a hole to form two loops.  3.  Cut a 3rd piece of string about 80cm long.  Put it through the two loops and tie it.  It will act as a handle.

4.  Bag can be painted as desired.

5.  Glue on paper collage materials and streamers.  Allow to dry.

Let the tots paint a picture for fun with the left over paint ~

~ And pull a funny face :D
6. Now it’s time to play with your beautiful kite!

Run and play...

Have fun...

Go wild in the wind!!!
