hit_parade_art_pg3 Darling Dice

Supplies: square cardboard box big enough to cover your child's torso, 1-2 yards heavy white fabric (enough to cover box), 10 black felt circles 3" to 4" in diameter, fabric glue, Danskin leotard #6312 in black or white, black and white tights, black and white ribbon, 2 pairs of dice, black shoes.

How-To: Remove the bottom of the box, and cut holes in the top and sides for your child's head and arms. Trace the top and four sides onto wrong side of fabric. Cut these squares out, adding a 1/2" seam allowance. Sew or glue pieces together, cover the box with fabric, and attach with glue. Cut fabric away from holes and secure edge of fabric to the underside of the box with glue. Glue felt dots to each side of box. Tie black and white ribbon together to make a hair bow, and glue dice to the bow. Wear box over leotard; cut and combine two pairs of tights so one leg is black and one is white.
