"We Three Kings"
It's a quick and easy project for one of our 12 craft stations.
- 3/4 by 3/4 cedar trim (nail strip)
- acrylic paint in flesh tones
- fine sharpies, white gel pen
- tacky glue
- assorted embellishments
- glue gun, optional
I bought my cedar trim at Home Depot. I purchased a bundle which was about 24 - 4 ft long pieces. That was plenty for the 150 kids who will be participating and cost me around $1.25 per 4 ft piece.
I then had a volunteer (Mrs. B's husband) cut all the pieces.
For each set you need a 4" piece, a 3" piece, and a 2" inch piece.
Sand the ends slightly.
The rectangles should be shorter then each trim piece so the faces will show and long enough to wrap completely around the piece of trim.
The seam will then be at the back.
Using fine sharpies and white gel pens mark on the faces. I prefer them with the eyes closed but I'm sure we will get lots of different expressions on Craft Day. You can color in some hair but it will only really show up on the sides of the heads.
Add the presents. The kids are using little presents cut off some garland, a gem embellishment, and some little glittered styrofoam balls. I found all of these supplies at the Dollar store.
A quick and easy Christmas craft.
See you next time.
