Markers, crayons, or colored pencils (black, pink, purple)
Small dowel or popsicle stick
What To Do:
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.
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.
Time to cut him out. Cut along the outside lines, making sure not to cut his nose off!
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.
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!
