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!
Hi! I often drop by your site to get some craft ideas for a toddler’s class that I handle, and I must say your site is amazing! Everything is laid out nicely and easy to understand! The photography is amazing too! Many thanks and keep up the good work!
Thanks so much for your comment and encouragement, Tommy! 😀
