Recycled Craft: Play Prop

April 03,2011

Kids love to pretend to be adults especially adults doing the jobs they see when they are out and about.  There has been a lot of road work in our area lately so we dug through the drawers to find things to make a hand held sign to pretend to be a construction zone flag person.

Gather your materials. You will need 2 plastic lids ( ours are one from an icing container , the other from riccota cheese), a pencil, some tape, a marker, sticky back foam and scissors.

Start by tracing the lids on the foam , writing stop on the red and slow on the yellow then cutting out .

Make notches in the lids.Tape the pencil in.

Tape the lids together sandwiching the pencil.

Peel off the backing of the foam.

Stick on. Play.
