World Teacher’s Day Kids’ Craft

kids' craft

Every October 5th we celebrate World Teachers’ Day. Take this time to recognize that special educator in your child’s life with a homemade craft. This DIY is easy to adapt for kids of different ages. That means you can try it with your preschooler or help your elementary school-aged student to create it. So, what can the kiddos make to mark teacher’s special day? A perfectly functional gift! Reuse cardboard tubes and create paper clip holders. And bonus, teacher can use these cute little crafts to hold any other (small-sized) school supply that she wants.

Materials:

  • Cardboard tubes (reuse the tubes from paper towel rolls)
  • Scissors
  • Flat cardboard (reuse the front of a cereal or cracker box)
  • A pencil
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Tempera paint
  • A paintbrush

Instructions:

  1. Cut the tube into segments. The size depends on how large or small your child wants the crafty container to be.
  2. Put the tube segment onto the flat cardboard (with the opening face down). Use the pencil to trace the circle onto the board.
  3. Cut the circle out.
  4. Paint the outside of the tube. Older kids can make elaborate designs, while younger children can try a solid color or even add finger paint prints. Let the paint dry.
  5. After the paint is completely dry, paint a layer of clear glue over it. This adds shine and helps to seal the paint in.
  6. Paint the bottom of the cardboard tube (on the edge) with glue.
  7. Press the glue-covered tube onto the cardboard circle to complete the craft.

Your child can make as many World Teacher’s Day holders as she wants!
