Kid Craft: New Year Banner

I publicly said that I would do a craft with my kids each week…and the very first week snuck up on me! LOL

BUT I was able to pull it out and make something that my kids think is kind of cute!

Happy New Year Banner
Supplies Needed:

  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • cardboard
  • pencil
  • marker
  • hole punch
  • yarn
  • tape

First I cut a triangle out of cardboard to use as a template. Then we traced 12 triangles on different colored construction paper. Then I had Connor cut out the triangles (most of them anyway).  Next I told him what letters to write on each triangle. Then we punched a hole in each corner of all the triangles and weaved the yarn through them. Finally I taped up the banner and there we have it! A New Year’s Banner!

I’m pretty proud of this project on a few levels, but the teacher in me knows that I was able to hit the mother load of  fine motor skills with this activity: tracing, cutting, lacing!

Post a link to your pictures if you try it!

Happy New Year!

    Good job and so cute. Imagination and creativity is begining of all problem solving. Just look at Franklin, Einstien, and Di Vinci.
