Once you’ve finished decorating, hang your stocking by the felt loop on the upper corner. You’ll have a festive felt craft, ready to be filled with goodies!
Make Your Own Robot
Transform a cardboard box into a homemade robot! Using Kid Made Modern’s Arts and Crafts Library, along with cardboard boxes and tubes, you can create your very own awesome robot.
Using tape and/or a hot glue gun, put together your cardboard boxes, leaving one side of each box open. On the two sides of the box, trace one of your cardboard tubes with a pencil. These will become your robot’s arms, so trace the circle in the location where you want the arms to stick out. With a grown-up’s help, use a knife or box cutter to carefully cut out the circles.
Insert one of the long cardboard tubes into each of the holes you just cut. You can now glue the back of your large cardboard box closed with your hot glue gun (and a grown-up’s help).
Use three of the short cardboard tubes to create the rest of your robot’s arms. Cut two of the tubes at an angle and cut the third in half. Use your hot glue gun to glue these three arm pieces together. Next, use your glue gun to glue the curved portion of each arm to the long cardboard tube that is sticking out of the robot box. When finished, you should have two arms with bent elbows.
Next, it’s time to decorate your robot! To add an extra boost of color, use Kid Made Modern’s Washable Paint Set to paint your robot in eye-popping colors. Them, use the felt pieces included in the Arts and Crafts Library to give your robot all sorts of buttons and knobs. Glue various shapes of colorful felt to the cardboard to create different sections of the panel and then used pipe cleaners, beads and pom poms to make each section look unique. You’ll have a rad robot, featuring a felt flourish!
