Earth Day is almost here and I decided to have a little craft party with the neighbors and their children.
I saved up our toilet paper rolls and went to the craft store and bought some stickers, paint, necklace string and glue. We had some sea shells around the house and used those as well.
I looked up different crafts to make and asked my mother in law. I came up with pencil holders, napkin rings and shell necklaces.
For the napkin holders, I cut the roll into fours. We painted all pretty colors and placed shells on some and stickers on others and left some plain.
The pencil holders were pretty easy too. We decorated one roll and let dry, then glued it to another scrap square of cardboard.
As for the necklaces, I wanted a necklace with a clasp, but could not find them at my local craft store, so I went with string. We found lots of pretty shells while visiting the beach this week. Many had holes in them and everyone got to pick their favorite shell, place it through the string and viola! A pretty shell necklace!
Did you make Earth Day crafts this year?
I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting, on behalf of Cottonelle, and received product samples and a promotional item to facilitate my party.
