If you are like me you probably have some old CD’s laying around collecting dust. In fact some of the young kids don’t even know what CD’s are! Give them a history lesson while creating some fun art. Try these fun crafts below. These crafts are also great for Earth Day.
Materials: CD, green construction paper or foam sheet, glue, googly eyes or eye stickers, string, craft gems or anything to decorate your turtle with.
Step 1: Draw and cut of legs and a head of a turtle. You can free hand draw one or you can look on-line for a turtle template.
Step 2: Glue legs and head onto the back (non shiny side) of the turtle.
Step 3: Stick eyes on the head of your turtle.
Step 4: Decorate with craft gems.
Step 5: Glue string on the back to hang.
CD Scratch Art
Materials: CD, Black Paint (any kind but washable), toothpick or pencil
Step 1: Paint the shiny side of the CD black.
Step 2: When the paint is dry, use a toothpick or pencil to scratch off a design.
(I did this with kids of all ages in a summer camp program and it was a big hit!)
CD Case Art
Materials: CD Case, Puffy Paint or you can use liquid glue mixed with food coloring
Step 1: Open CD Case, separate the back from the front. You will only need the front clear part of the case for this project.
Step 2: Paint the inside of the clear case with puffy paint.
Optional Display Idea: I had the kids in a summer camp program make these. I collected them and attached them all together with hot glue and made a big display for an art show. Everyone loved them.
