-Hi, my name is Eva. We're gonna have fun with this next project because we got a horse around with the brown and yellow horse. In this project, you will need these supplies: glue, yellow paint, brown fringe, scissors, brown felt, paint brushes, small brown pompoms, toilet paper too, popsicle sticks, and a Dixie Cap. To begin our brown and yellow horse, you going to start with your plain Dixie Cap, and we're going to pain this yellow. If your child would like to change the color of the horse that's just fine, but today we choose yellow and brown, and now parents, you hold the cap while your child paints the outside and you can also wear a glove to protect your hand from the paint. Now that you cup is drying, you're going to take your toilet paper roll and scissors, and you can tell your kids you can make a line or just tell them right where you would like them to make 2 slits. and we all wanna go in about half an inch and I'm making them about an in inch apart, and you're going to do the same on the other side trying to match the same little slits. Now, what we're going to do is cover it with yellow popsicle sticks. You can purchase your popsicle sticks already yellow or you can paint them as we did. And you're going to do is glue then along the sides, just apply some tacky glue, but make note of where your slits are for the lets, so we don't cover that. I'm gonna start my first one right next to it, so I can mark where the slits are. Now, I'm going to apply 2 popsicle sticks in between the little space between the 2 legs. Now, while this dries, just set it aside, and we're going to cut out our little ears for the top of our horse. So, grab your brown felt, and we're just gonna take some scissors and I'm gonna cut just a descent size little rounded triangle. So, you can make them pointy if you want or the kids can kind of cut up on little shape out of them. Now, that your body is dry, we're going to add the legs. You're going to add your legs in the little slits that you made on each side and now that the legs are on, you an attach the head. This is its little nose, so you want it facing out. So just gonna put a little dot of Tacky glue here. Now, that we have the body in the head and-- Now, that we have it all connected, we to add a little details to the face. So, we're going to apply 2 little pompoms for the eye, and you just need little dots of Tacky glue, stick your pompoms right wherever they want them they put them. You can have any eyes that you like, and now we need 2 years, so we're just gonna put a little bit of glue and again you can bend your felt. It might stick straight up or you can put it against the back. Now, we're going to make the main and the tails using our brown fringe. So, I take a little bit and I kind of cut it. Add a little bit of glue to the top and a little down on this back, and then for the tail, we're gonna do pretty much the same thing. Just kind of grab a little gob here, and there you have it, you've been horsing around with your cute yellow and brown horse.
-Hi. My name is Eva. And today, we are making egg carton sea creatures. To begin, you will need these supplies: Egg carton, paints of your choice, paint brush, glitter glue, googly eyes, scissors, and tacky glue. Today, we're making a clam sea creature, but we'll show you different variations later. First, what we're going to do is paint the two side cartons that are across from each other. We're just going to add a coat of paint. Now that you've let it dry, we're going to cut our two clam sides out, but make sure you start and just go around the edges. If your child is a little bit older, they might be able to do this. If they're kind of young, you might need to help them. Now that you've got them all cut out, we're going to add some decorations to them and you can add more paint to them or you can add a little bit of glitter glue. I'm just gonna draw some little design lines going down the side and then last, we're gonna give them some googly eyes so we feel like he's really alive. And there you have your cute little clam creature. Now here are some other variations you can do to add to your sea creature collection. You can make a crab by just adding paperclips and googly eyes or how about a little jellyfish with some tissue paper and googly eyes?
-Hi, my name is Eva and thanks so much for joining me. Today, we're gonna be making flying saucer. To make your flying saucer, you need these materials: hot glue, green tape, a little alien, round stickers, scissors, Slurpee drink cover, small candies, and 2 small plastic balls. To begin your flying saucer, you ill need to start with your 2 balls, and what we're going to do is fill the bottom with some hard candies or you can use toys and other little goodies and use it as a party favorite or just for fun maybe after school you make one for your kid. That would be a lot of fun, but I think that the kids will have of fun throwing this for all their friends and hand out at a party or something. Now that you've filled it, we're going to put our other bowl on top to seal it and instead of using glue, we're going to use some fun tape. So, you can make some strips out of your tape. You can make designs with tape. You can do the whole thing with tape and maybe have them cut it later to open it. It's up to you how they want to do it. Then, I'm just gonna use about 3 pieces and just gonna be a really neat flying saucer, okay. So, you can use markers. So, whatever you like to decorate your UFO, but I'm going to use this cute little stickers, and I'm just gonna stick them on like they are little, I don't know, like little windows or something silly like that, and you can use all different colors. You can use tape to make other designs on it and gonna create it as you like. I think I'm good there. I wanna keep it pretty simple. You can decorate the top a little bit, on the inside, and next we're gonna add our cute little character. I just love them, use this as little alien. You can get these at your little stores, party supply stores, and we're gonna add a little bit of hot, make sure it helps you this part and you can stick the alien wherever the child would like and we're just gonna leave them on top to dry and to seal in our spaceship and finish it off. He needs a protective layer, so nobody can get in. Okay, and we're just gonna add a little bit of hot glue, and there you have your cute little flying saucer.
