Ojo de Dios (God's Eye) is a native american craft that is common in both the Huichol and Navajo tribes. The four tips represent earth, air, water, and fire.
The first step is to glue two popsicle sticks together.
Wrap the yarn several times around the center to secure the yarn. Then wrap the yarn around the popsicle stick over and around clockwise.
After weaving around the popsicle sticks secure the end.
Help each child glue together two toilet paper rolls using a piece of construction paper. Provide art supplies for them to decorate their binoculars. When they are done decorating, punch holes on the side of each pair of binoculars and tie a piece of string through the holes so that the children can wear the binoculars around their necks.
What you need: construction paper, colored markers, glue, scissors.
Have the children select the color of their watch. Allow older children to draw on numbers and help them choose the time they would like.
Here is a plain black piece of construction paper.
Add sunscreen to half.
Make sure to rub it in good, Then let it sit in the sun all day.
At the end of the day check out what the sunscreen did. The sun damaged andfaded the side with out the sunscreen. The other side is still full of color!
When we don't wear sunscreen the sun damages our skin. We can see some types of damage such as Sunburns but it can also cause damage that we can not see right away, such as skin cancer. Remember to wear your sunscreen and stay hydrated.
This first sun catcher can be made with construction paper, plastic wrap, tissue/gift paper, and diluted glue.
Lay down a piece of plastic wrap. Provide the children with construction paper stencils, such as the rocket ship shown below, or allow them to create their own. They can then coat the tissue paper in the glue solution, and place it over the top of the stencil. After it has dried remove the plastic wrap and tape to a window.
The second version we have uses pony beads. Have children create a design on a cookie sheet or in a muffin pan. Have an ADULT put them in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes or until melted. Let cool then add string!
