Kids Crafts & Projects



Supplies Needed:

*Empty Pringle's Can
*3- 2 3/8" x 9 5/8" pieces of acetate, Plexiglas, or mirrors
*3- 2 3/8" x 9 5/8" pieces of black construction paper
*1 circular piece of acetate (trace bottom of Pringle's can, then cut out)
*1 - 1/2" strip of cardboard trimmed to fit inside of the can
*Clear colored plastic beads, metallic confetti, etc.
*Materials to decorate the outside of the can


Step One: Clean and dry an empty Pringle's can.

Step Two: Insert the 3 pieces of acetate (the clear plastic that transparencies are made from) into the can. The will form a triangularshape.

Step Three: Insert the 3 black pieces of construction paper behind each piece of acetate to create a mirrored effect.

Step Four: Cut a circle from the acetate by measuring from the bottom of the can. Place on top of the triangle in the can to stop the beads from falling through the kaleidoscope.


Step Five: insert the cardboard strip on top of the circle to hold everything
together. Glue in place with hot glue or craft glue.

Step Six: pour in colored beads and other shinny colorful materials.

Step Seven: Cut a 3" cardboard ring and decorate the same way you did the  can. Slip this ring over the can to serve as the turning mechanism for the

Step Eight: Glue the lid to the Pringle's can in place to keep the beads from
spilling out.

Step Nine: Now have fun decorating the outside of the can. You may use  contact paper, construction paper, or anything your imagination can think of!
Homemade Masks  

All you need is paper plates, popsicle sticks, and coloring supplies (crayons, colored pencils, markers, etc) - and children with imagination!

On each paper plate, cut out two holes for the eyes, and attach a popsicle stick to the bottom of the plate as a handle (use glue or stapler). Then let your child use her imagination to color a face on the plate - a person, an animal, a clown, an alien, whatever their heart desires! Make as many as you or your kids would like, and when you are done....

Stage an impromptu play! It's easy enough to switch masks to be different
characters, and your children can use their imagination to come up with a story to go with the masks that they made!
