CRAFTivities- Farm in A Box (Farm) REPOST

 FARM IN A BOX


TOOLS:
Shoe box or other small box, clip art of farm animals (laminated and cut out), lg Popsicle sticks. glue, foam blocks, paint, paint brush, container for paint, grass or straw.

MAKE IT A CRAFT KIT
(The idea is to eliminate time consuming steps so you can spend more time with your LO)
Gather tools
get clip art off line, print, laminate and cut out
make sure the foam blocks fit in the box cut to fit if needed
Place the rest of the tools in the shoe box or in a plastic bag
Now it's ready to go when you are!

STEPS:
Begin by painting the box, set aside to let dry (tempura paints dry pretty quickly)
Glue the farm animals to the sticks
Once the box dries insert the foam blocks. Cut to fit if needed.
place a small amount of glue on tip of blocks and glue on straw or grass. (Too much glue will make the the foam hard when dried, be careful!) - set aside to dry
Once all dried insert the sticks into the foam and you have your farm!
When you are done, take the sicks d
own, and lay them in the box and close the lid.

I think we need to start communicating through email because I am leaving you tons of comments! We don't have In n Out Burger, but I have seen the tee shirts. WE also don't have White Castle or Sonic. For some reason there are tons of Sonic commercials on here but there isn't one anywhere in New England as far as I know. I'm glad you looked up quahog; I would not eat a rodent = ewww!
