Kid-Friendly Friday: Wonderland-Style

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great week and will be able to enjoy the weekend. Here's a quick craft to keep those little hands busy while mom enjoys some "me" time.

Paper plate
Markers, crayons, or colored pencils (black, pink, purple)
Small dowel or popsicle stick

What To Do:
Step One:
Using your pencil, draw an outline of the Cheshire Cat's smile and nose. I chose to use a paper plate for this project because it is much easier to follow the rounded lines of the plate. (I'm no free-hand artist. I use any help I can get, even if it is from a paper plate!) I outlined mine with black marker so it would be easier to see. Feel free to do the same.

 Step Two:
Color him in! I used pink marker for the area around his mouth, and purple for his nose. Make sure to add those teeth in! He definitely needs a big toothy grin.

Step Three:
Time to cut him out. Cut along the outside lines, making sure not to cut his nose off!

Step Four:
On the back, attach the popsicle stick or dowel. I find tape is easier, quicker, and neater, but I'm sure you could use glue.

Step Five:
Enjoy your new smile! You can make him appear and disappear anywhere!

I couldn't help but smile behind it, even though I know you can't see it!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for some Alice-themed cupcakes! Can't wait to share them with you!
