Today’s craft was this adorable little whale. I worked hard this weekend/last night to come up with a bunch of new printables for the week ahead. We have a pretty busy schedule with play dates and a short road trip planned, that I knew I wouldn’t have time to sit down during the week to make new crafts. So, I slaved last night and came up with 4 new crafts for this week. You can check out the preview on LCL’s Facebook Page… just scroll down some.
Lorelai was thrilled to see that today’s craft was a whale. She has asked for a whale several times in the past, but I couldn’t get it right. This one isn’t perfect, but at least it’s cute! Download/Print & Directions are at the bottom of this post.
Materials We Used:
- Card Stock – for printing the whale printable
- 1 Background – we used scrapbook paper
- Paint – light blue (white & blue mixed)
- Googly Eye
- Paintbrush (duh)
Directions: Print out the whale printable. Have your child paint each part, and take care to skip the mouth/smile. Once dry, cut out and assemble/glue as shown above. We used a piece of scrapbook paper as the background. It fit!
Tip: I had Lorelai paint everything, then we went back over the smaller fin with a slightly darker blue. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but there is a difference. I just added a few more drops of dark blue to our paint mixture and mixed… simple!
