I was looking at the pictures the fall trees that we made from arm and hand tracings, and it gave me the idea for the craft that we did today: Monster Hands!
I mentioned a while back that the local paint shop gave us some expired wall-paper sample books. If you can get your hands on a book or two for yourself, do it! I just asked, and the store manager happily handed FIVE books over to me. He said they just throw them out once they become outdated.
Wallpaper samples are AWESOME for crafting with, and beat the pants off paying for pricey scrap-book paper when it comes to kid’s crafts.
We chose some nifty green samples to trace hands and arms onto.
The Hooligans then glued fingernails onto the hands. I cut the red fingernails from craft foam, and I used a styrofoam meat tray for the black ones.
Then we used various lentils to decorate the arms with “warts”.
