Something for the toddler/ preschooler today. Big surprise, I went with Sesame Street.
Just when you thought I couldn't possibly have another Sesame Street post - here it is Madeleine's Elmo Advent.
Just letting you know that there were two of these made until I had a brain reboot and realized Max is not going to be eating lollipops. Actually these were a lot of fun to make and the pictures aren't doing them a lot of justice.
- White glue
- Scrapbook stickers
- Hot glue
- Vinyl (optional
Paint the board
Draw or transfer your image on. I found mine over at the Sesame Street Website
I had a few difficulties, then I discovered an awesome new wood transfer method see below:
Thanks Samuel, he also added the trees and decorations that weren't on the picture. He also decided to take a bite out of the Cookie Monsters tree - I didn't really want it but since he was drawing, who am I to argue?
Using the glue fill each color individually
Then glitter, don't worry about waste as soon as it dries, bang it around and put the excess back in the jar.
Then mark out the holes for the lollipops and drill.
Rub out all the pencil markings - there were a few stubborn marks a magic eraser cleaned them right off.
Glue Ribbon around the edges.
Stick the scrapbook stickers around the holes and cut out the kids names and stick them on and you're done
I guess Max will have his next year.
That wraps up day 3 of
If you missed them
Thanks for reading,
