Vroom! Vroom!  An eraser car is a creative, fun activity children can make as a back to school craft or even on the weekends! Adult supervision will be required, especially for smaller children, to prevent little ones from putting pieces in their mouths. Have fun!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Knife (have a parent do this part of the craft)
  • White Glue
  • Thumbtacks
  • Cardboard
  • Permanent Markers

HERE’S HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Begin by cutting erasers with a knife (a parent’s job; kids can use scissors for this, but the cuts won’t be as straight).
  2. Stack the erasers to make cars, trucks, and trailers. Pencil-cap erasers and automatic pencil eraser refills make good cargo. Use white glue to hold the pieces together.
  3. To make tires, press thumbtacks into a piece of cardboard, color them with permanent markers, then remove the tacks and press them in place on the vehicles.

Looking for the perfect Father’s Day present? This six-piece desktop decoration showcases family photos on two sides when it’s assembled and doubles as a brainteaser when Dad needs a distraction.

You will need:

  • 6 (1 1/2-inch) wooden cubes
  • Acrylic paints and paintbrushes
  • Rubber band
  • Thin black marker
  • 2 photos (3×5 or 4×6)
  • Double-sided adhesive sheets
  • Scissor
  • X-Acto knife
  • Letter stickers (optional)

How To:

  1. Paint the sides of each cube, leaving the top and bottom bare.
  2. When they’re dry, arrange them in a rectangle, unpainted sides up, and wrap a rubber band around them to hold them together.

    Step 2

    Using the marker, trace the rectangle onto the picture side of each photo, making sure everyone’s faces fit within the rectangle. Apply a double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of each photo and cut along the tracing lines. Peel off the adhesive’s backing and adhere one photo to the top of the cubes and one to the bottom (since it’s a bit tricky, it’s a parent’s job).

  3. Divide the photos by cutting along the edges of the cubes with the X-Acto knife (another job for a parent). Add letter stickers if desired.

Some bunny’s special! My mom always said that to me when I would ask about Easter as a child. Why not make your little one feel special by making him or her “personalized” bunny ears! You can make them in a variety of colors or even get crazy and stay up late one night (for you perfectionist moms out there!) and craft them for your kiddo’s whole classroom! Turn your little one into an Easter bunny with a pair of pink felt ears.
