A parent or guardian should be present when kids try out these crafts.

This activity is ideal for kids who love to read. They can keep their place in their books with a foam bookworm. Place a pom-pom on the craft foam and draw a half circle to start your pattern. Verify your mark and place the pom-pom back on the craft foam. Draw another half circle around the pom-pom so that it looks like brackets. Cut around the curved lines you created. Create a wiggle edge on the sides of your craft foam. Glue the pom-pom to the spot where you created the curved lines with tacky glue. Verify that it covers the curves. Glue the wiggly eyes onto the pom-pom. Write "Book Worm" on the foam with a paint pen or permanent marker. If you prefer, write your child's name on the bookmark.
Foam Frog Notepad
Create an entertaining notepad for your child, especially if he love frogs. Print out the frog pattern located in the Resource section and trace it onto green funky foam. Cut out the two arms, two legs and one head. Paint four craft sticks green and overlap them so that they make a square. Glue the frog legs and arms to the craft sticks. Stick on the wiggly eyes and draw a smile with a marker. Glue a stick-it notepad to the centre of the frog. Turn the frog around and glue on a magnet to use on the refrigerator.
Halloween Foam Bracelets
Create foam bracelets for the Halloween season. Use white, yellow, black or green foam and the spooky bracelet Halloween pattern (see Resources). Print out the Halloween bracelet pattern and trace it onto your desired colour of fun foam. Cut the pieces out. Glue the ends of the rick rack underneath the band. Glue your ghost onto the centre of the band. Use either a paper punch or small half black beads to create eyes. Glue a small piece of Velcro onto one side of the bracelet and the opposite Velcro inside the band. Repeat the instructions for gluing on the bat.
