Help your child create his or her own crazy optical illusions by making body-size bib puppet outfits they can stand behind, just like those fun wooden screens at amusement parks where you slip your head through a hole and appear as if you've become a cowboy.
What You'll Need:
- Butcher paper
- Camera or videotape recorder
How to make a bib puppet:
Step 1: Draw a headless animal or space alien outfit on a large piece of butcher paper. Craft it as crazy as you like -- create something that will make everyone laugh.
Step 2: Cut out your creation, and paint it.
Step 3: When the paint is dry, suspend the bib puppet with pieces of string so your child can peek his head over the top.
Take a picture or videotape your child. For more fun, turn the pictures into postcards to send to grandparents.
The next craft is extra hot.
