Spark Story Craft

Every year, I like to read the Spark Story (from the Program Book (Canada)) to the girls and do a craft relating to that story. Two years ago we did a picture on a paper plate that turned out so well, that I can't wait to do it again this year!

Preparation:

We do a little prep for this craft before hand. You need to cut out little dolls about 3 1/2 inches tall, from Flesh colored felt. And pink dresses to fit. I made a triangle and just cut the top of the triangle off...

Directions:

    1. Take a 9" Chinette paper plate: The STIFF ones and have the girls draw a rainbow around the inside of the plate, but on the bottom part.

    2. Place your "Crystal" doll on the plate in the middle using white glue, and put her dress on her.

    3. Give her some hair. We used the curly doll hair, but you could use wool too. Put on some eyes and draw a mouth. (We didn't do shoes.)

    4. Place cotton balls at the bottom of the rainbow ends to represent clouds.

    5. Underneath the doll, give the girls sequins and glitter to glue on the "ground" to represent the crystals, diamonds, rubies and emeralds etc. that Crystal found at the end of the rainbow.

    6. Use a hole punch and make a hole in the top rim of the plate and hang with a pink ribbon.

    7. Let the plates lay flat till the girls go home, and they should be dry enough to hang.

Hint, Tip and Friendly Advice:

Gwen has also contributed a version of this for Brownies.
