- craft foam
- plastic needles
- googly eyes
Start off by cutting circles out of the foam for faces. From there I let the kids use the supplies to create caricatures of their grandparents!
We used the needles and yarn to make loopy curly hair for the Namas. For the Pawpaws we put a layer of glue on the foam and then laid strips of yarn across it. After the glue dried we gave them haircuts. Because we all know that Pawpaw S gets his haircut regularly on Saturday mornings.
The googly eyes were adorned with marker drawn eyeglasses, and strips of red and white foam made fun mouths complete with Chitlet-like teeth.
Once the glue dried on the front, I hot glued strips of magnet to the back of the faces. Then I took a little bit of double-sided tape and attached them to the cards (white cardstock folded in half).
A little help was needed with the spelling but not with finishing up our little grandparents! Inside the cards we wrote personalized messages, along with a note that the faces were actually magnets. Not that I imagine the kids won’t tell them!
