Labor Day Activities for Kids


"Good Work" Sign
Create a Labor Day "Good Work" sign to inspire your hardest worker.
Create a Labor Day "Good Work" sign to inspire your hardest worker.

On Labor Day, remind your favorite worker of the good work they've done!

­What You'll Need:

Embroidery canvas

Different-colored raffia

Wool needle

Pencil

Scissors

Thin cardboard

Glue

­ Write the words "Good Work" on a piece of embroidery canvas. You can add other simple line drawings if you wish, such as stars to show that a job has been done well.

Then sew the words and pictures with different colored strands of raffia. Use long stitches for straight lines and small stitches for going around curves, such as for letters in the word "Good."

Cut a piece of thin cardboard into a frame shape, and glue it over your canvas so it frames your artwork. Glue another piece of cardboard to the back. When dry, give the sign to your favorite worker to hang in his or her workplace.

A great way to motivate yourself while making crafts is to whistle while you work! Find out how a little whistling on Labor Day can make the day more enjoyable.
