We love making cute crafts and our dining room wall can attest for that. There’s a nice gallery of kid art going on on all four walls (and the ceiling, too!) and this cute newt craft is sure to make the wall!
We’re joining bloggers from all over in the 31 days of ABCs series hosted by All Done Monkey. Each day, a blogger has been publishing a blog post based on a letter. We’re up next with N and our napkin newt.
To make your newt, you’ll need a few supplies. We used napkins, googly eyes, paint dab markers, glue, and red card stock. We received the googly eyes and paint dab markers from www.craftprojectideas.com.
Start by drawing a simple newt shape on the napkin. I used a marker, but a pen would work, too.
If you have a bunch of newts to make for a preschool class or siblings, stack up a few sheets of napkins. Grab your sharpest scissors and cut out the newts. This is a job for a parent, but an older child could cut this complex shape. Hold the napkins together tightly as you cut around the toes.
We liked how our napkin newt’s texture looked like scales.
Next, use your paint dab markers to dab on spots. We went with different colors, and each child made their newt differently.
It was fun to see my daughter’s personalities coming out in their craftiness. Big Sister was deliberate and colorful with her painting.
Baby Girl painted in typical Baby Girl fashion…fast and furious and with STYLE!
Next, glue on googly eyes.
These newts are almost done. We talked about the letter N and how Newt and Napkin both start with “N”. We said a bunch of other words that start with “n” as we crafted.
Snip tongues from the red card stock and glue to the back of the newts. Super cute newt!
