D is for Doggie: craft for kids

One of the projects that FunLab sponsored during the 2012-2013 academic school year was English preschool for 4 and 5 year olds based on the Jolly Phonics method of teaching reading and writing. As an obvious continuation of this project, during our summer camps we decided to further develop the phonics theme with a fun, creative twist! Each week is dedicated to a different “sound” concentrating on the discovery of words and their meanings using craft projects. During our “D” week we had had dinosaurs, dragons, ducks, dungeons and, of course DOGS! Discover this easy craft project made out of recycled materials to create a DOGGIE PIN!

You will need:
Cardboard boxes (we used empty cereal boxes)
Google Eyes
Craft Foam
Felt scraps
Craft glue

Let’s get started!
Step 1: Use a glass to trace a circle on the inside of the box. Cut out.

Step 2: Paint with acrylics. Let dry.
Step 3: Add details such as google eyes, little ears cut out of felt and a bead for a nose.

Step 4: Glue on pin.

ALL DONE! Our campers were excited to wear their “D” as in DOGGIE pin and show off what they had learned.
