Print out these fun wristbands on cardstock paper and then decorate! Cut out each one on the dotted lines. Attach the ends together with either a staple, tape, glue, or Velcro. I find that Velcro is the best because it's easier to put on and remove. Each band has been left blank on one end because this area will be used to put it together.
If you'd like to customize your own wristbands, you may also choose to use the blank template below. Enjoy :)

This craft reminds me of the book "The Rainbow Fish." :)
How to make it:
1. Click on the template, right-click to save, print out.
2. Color and decorate with markers, crayons, or colored pencil.
3. Cut out scales from aluminum foil and glue on wherever you feel fits.
4. Cut out strips of colorful tissue paper and glue onto the back of the fish.
5. Punch two holes in the front of the fish on the mouth.
6. Attach each edge of a piece of string (the length is up to you) to each of the holes.
Design your own board game using this template I created. Just print it out, decorate it, and give it a name. There is also a game piece and dice template available that I didn't create, but found online.

Create your own cutie pie cupcakes with this template I drew. Just click on the image below, right-click to save, and print it out. Decorate the two cupcakes with markers/crayons/colored pencils and then cut them out. Best to use cardstock, but if you don't have that available you can glue them to construction paper. Glitter is also optional. Eat up!
Create your own ice cream flavors with this cute double-scoop ice cream cone template. Click on the image, right-click to save, then print it out! Decorate it the way you want to, cut it out, and glue the pieces together. Best to use cardstock paper, or glue the finished ice cream cone to a sheet of construction paper.
Save (click on the small image and then right-click to save) and print out one of the templates below on cardstock paper and decorate. I found that it's best to then glue the paper to another sheet of cardstock paper to make them stronger and less flimsy.
After you're finished decorating all of the pieces, you cut them out and glue the handles to the sides. It's best to use a stronger glue like crazy glue or a hot glue gun, but regular Elmer's glue should work okay, too. I used an X-Acto knife to cut out the eye holes. These were really popular with the kids at my work. :)
Another optional variation of this craft I've tried was taking some colored transparent saran wrap or plastic wrap and gluing it to the inside of the eye-holes to make them look more like sunglasses.
This is a cute craft your kids can make easily. I did two variations of this craft- masks and glasses. You can click on the templates below and right-click to save and print out on cardstock paper.
If you want to make a mask, you just decorate and cut them out. Then you can punch holes in the sides and attach string.
If you want to make them into New Years glasses, you decorate and cut them out, then you can use colorful pipe cleaners to cut out and create the numbers of the year. To attach them, you need to use either a hot glue gun or crazy glue. For the handles, you use the pipe cleaners and twist them around the holes and shape them to fit your ears.
