90’s Popsicle “Stick-Stickly” Turkey

If you were between the ages of 9-11 during 1995-1998, watching Nickelodeon after school, I’m sure you’ll know exactly who Stick Stickly is. Here’s a craft that made me drop to to my knees in awe when it brought me to my childhood. PINspired by Formula Mom’s: Craft Stick Turkey Craft. Combining  a festive craft I can enjoy with my kids, and while bringing up old childhood memories of my favorite TV shows is one of the many best parts of parenting.

Stick Stickly is from Nickelodeon’s Nick In The Afternoon. This cool little popsicle stick figure was the TV host to my childhood afternoons after school!

Vampire Handprint

As always, I was on Pinterest searching up a good kids craft for my children and also for my sons 2nd grade class. I come into the classroom every Friday afternoon and do a craft. As a crafty class mom, I love doing these crafts. If I could, I would want to come in at least 2 or 3 times a week to do arts & crafts with them.

In the spirit of Halloween I found this great Vampire craft by Michelle from (Crafty Morning). This is such a great Halloween art project your children or students will enjoy!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Construction Paper (Colors: White, red, and black)

Tempra Paint (Colors: Brown, white, black)

Goggly Eyes

Paint Brush

Glue

Scissors

Supplies

Directions:

1.  For a nice realistic skin tone, you’ll need to mix the brown and white tempra paint.

2.  Once Mixed, paint skin tone color to the palm of the hand, as well as the thumb.

3.  Add black paint to the 4 leftover fingers, with a widows peak detail.

4.  Place painted hand on white construction paper, and set aside to dry.

5.   Take your red, and black paper and cut the body and collar of the vampire.

6.   Using scraps of white and red paper, cut out little triangles for the bowtie and white shirt.

7.   Glue your pieces together on white paper.

8.   By this time your handprint should be already dry, and ready to cut and paste.

9.   Once your handprint it cut out, glue your goggley eyes in place.

10.   Draw in a smile, and add 2 teeth like fangs. (Red or white using scraps of construction paper.)

At this point your vampire should be completely dry and display in the classroom or on the fridge!

Happy crafting!
