Do you have a football fan in your life? Looking to spread a little cheer in their football loving lives? My daughter wanted to get crafty this week and asked if we could make a photo frame. So I decided to bust out the Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape and make a DIY Football Photo Frame that’s easy for kids to make. With the help of an adult, of course! The adult cuts out all of the shapes while the kids get to have fun decorating! Just like our DIY bottle toss game from last week. 

We ended up with the perfect gift for my football loving sister and brother in law with a photo of their oldest in the frame. How cute is that? And it was easy too! We were able to create this frame in an afternoon after school and display it on the mantel for when my sister comes over. How cute will this look on her mantel? 

Want to know JUST how easy it was? Read ahead to find out!

What you do:

3. Using same 4×6 photo paper, trace around it to create where the frame opening will be. 

4. Cut out top and sides of 4×6 piece. Score on back side with x-acto knife and fold cut out piece into thirds to create stand for frame.

5. Using Scotch® Expressions Brown Glitter Tape, let your child wrap front side of the football frame completely until no cardboard is showing. Make sure the sides are covered complete. Don’t worry about the back side, we’ll be covering that up! 

6. Once you’ve covered out the front, wrap the stand with Scotch® Expressions Green Glitter Tape. Once the stand is covered, use a piece of Scotch® Expressions Brown glitter tape to secure the stand to the frame so it doesn’t unfold.

7. Grab your brown paper and trace the outline of the football and the 4×6 spot for the photo. Cut out the football shape of the construction paper. Cutting from the bottom of the football, cut out the 4×6 piece and the bottom of the football (to leave space for the stand). 

8. Attach brown cut out to back of the frame using Scotch® Create Double-sided Tape.

9. Cut out a 5×7 piece of white paper. Notch a small half circle on the top of the paper. Tape the white paper onto the back of the frame on the two sides with Scotch® Create Double-sided Tape. 

10. Add a photo and enjoy your frame!

How do you celebrate sports in your home? 

I was able to find all of the crafting goodies I needed, including the Scotch® Expressions Glitter Tape, in the craft aisle in Walmart. So easy to find everything in one place! With a perfect combination of versatility, function & fun, Scotch® Expressions Tapes turn everyday projects into simply inspired creations. I love how simple and easy it was to make this frame with my daughter and how fun and sparkly it ended up! How awesome is that?

Tissue Paper Jack-O-Lantern Preschool Craft

Tissue Paper Jack-O-Lantern

Ever since my son started Kindergarten and is there 5 days a week and my daughter started to go to preschool full time three days a week, I’ve found that I’m at a loss for what to do on the Tuesday I have my daughter at home with me.

Now normally we have a scheduled activity or playdate planned away from the house but I’ve noticed more times than not we come to find ourselves with nothing to do on Tuesdays. So I’ve decided to start doing fun crafts and activities to help keep her busy.

With Halloween right around the corner I decided to have her make a fun tissue paper jack-o-lantern to help decorate the house that was similar to the paper plate pumpkin we made last year. We’ve been working on fine motor skills and the steps taken to make this craft definitely helped her practice those skills. Plus, she loves crafting with glue! [Read more…]

DIY Fruit Juice Dyed Watermelon Windsock

We are in the midst of a heat wave and the only thing we can think about these days is summer. But since we’re still in spring we’re doing a bit of summer prep. While working on our garden the kids decided they wanted to plant watermelon this year so I headed to the store to pick up some watermelon seeds.

While we were shopping at Walmart I ended up in the fruit juice aisle – trying to kill two birds with one stone and getting everything off my list. I noticed the larger ready-to-drink Kool-Aid bottles and grabbed some Tropical Punch to help me cool off while I was gardening. [Read more…]
