Yesterday was another hot day here and I was trying to think of a craft to do with the kids being it was too hot to play outside. I remembered Rebecca's post and that we had some craft foam in our art closet.
The great thing about this project is that it keeps the kids busy twice -- 1. making the actual craft 2. playing with the foam in the bath tub.
We decided to make animals. I went online and googled stencil patterns. The kids chose which animals they wanted. I printed out the image of the stencils. I then taped each paper stencil to the craft foam. Here's what we made:
So, thank you, Rebecca! This was fun and the kids are already requesting more animals. Like tarantulas and dinosaurs.
