I make crafts with the kids almost every day. Last week we talked about forest animals and one of the animals was an owl. The night-time owl diorama turned out really cute.
8x10 black foam piece, rectangle styrafoam, various sizes of sicks from the backyard, wiggle eyes, stickpins and snow spray (the kind you use to spray your windows with).
It's really easy to make too.
-glue the wiggle eyes to the black foam, anywhere and as many as you like.
-place sticks in the styrofoam.
-use stickpins to attach the black foam to the styrofoam. (adults only)(I tried glue but it wouldn't stick to the styrofoam).
-spray 'snow spray' around the sticks to make it look like snow drifts. (The snow spray didn't dry very well, so be careful or skip this step).
