Clothespin Reindeer

Clothespin Reindeer

This Clothespin Reindeer is a great easy craft for younger girls.  I used to make these with my grandmother too, so it’s a great family craft.  You can use these very basic instructions or allow the girls to embellish the reindeer clothespins more with paints, glitter, ribbons, etc.  Super easy and super cheap.

Materials NeededMaterials Needed:

DirectionsDirections:

  1. Paint wood area of three clothespins Honey Brown.  Let dry.
  2. Position two clothespins side-by-side and adhere with glue.
  3. Position third clothespin in opposite direction and adhere to small end of double clothespins for reindeer head.
  4. Position and adhere eyes and pom pom nose.

Safety TipsSafety Tips!

  1. Adults should work with the hot glue gun only.

The Girl Scouts Fabric Collection

I’ve always got my ear to the ground, and when I saw this I thought it was pretty awesome.  Fabric.com is now selling Girl Scout Fabric themed prints.  I’ve seen more and more Girl Scout crafty things at retail stores (like the scrapbooking kits at my local craft store), but this is really cool for any sewing or other fabric related crafts for troops to take part in.

Girl Scout FabricThe fabric is 100% cotton, 44” wide and most are roughly $9 per yard.

The Girl Scouts® Fabric Collection celebrates the spirit of this treasured organization with a combination of fun and colorful designs. Inspirational words mix easily with “Think Green” slogans and the traditional Girl Scouts® cookies. This collection is appropriate for quilting and craft projects as well as apparel and home decor accents.

I promise to find more crafts to share that you can use this fabric for!

Gobble Gobble T-Shirts

Gobble Gobble T-Shirts

Gobble Gobble T-Shirts are great crafts around Thanksgiving.  As well, this craft can very easily be done while teaching the girls more about the origins of American Thanksgiving and the importance of tradition and family.  If t-shirts are a little outside the budget for your troop during this down economy, you can change the medium to poster board and make the same design on posters for decorations during Thanksgiving.

Materials NeededMaterials Needed:

DirectionsDirections:

  1. Place the t-shirt board inside of the t-shirt.
  2. Use the sponge brush to place paint colors on the girl’s hand and fingers.
  3. Have the girl steadily place her hand on the shirt to print the turkey, pressing gently on each finger to make sure the paint prints.  You may need to hold her hand to help keep the print from smearing.
  4. Carefully lift her hand straight up off the shirt to avoid smudging.  Immediately wash her hands with soap and water.
  5. Brush red paint on foam alphabet stamps and press on shirt and let dry.
  6. Use fabric paint to add detail to turkey, such as legs, beak and eye and let dry.

Safety TipsSafety Tips!

  1. Adult supervision is required at all times.
  2. Ensure that all paint is dry before you let the girls take their t-shirts home.
  3. Double check that all paints used are nontoxic.

Remember that if you don’t have a t-shirt board, you can place a sheet of wax paper inside the shirt to prevent transfer of the paint.
