Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my son and I had a ball (literally) creating an Invisible Nasties craft. While we love to do crafts on occasion and can be highly creative at times, this project was unique. Right now, there is a crafts contest being held. Here are the details as found on the site (http://invisiblenasties.info/crafts-contest/):
To enter our Craft & Learn contest:Not only can you use this opportunity to educate your child about the importance of dental hygiene, you can also earn them some cash and a cool t-shirt. They could open a bank account, pick out a special toy, purchase a gift for someone else, or save the money for a rainy day. It's so easy to enter. Just think of it as doing something you love (crafting) and getting a reward for it. You don't have to convince Kaden and I.
Three winners will be selected at random on November 30 from all entries.
- Create an Invisible Nasties-inspired craft with your kids (for inspiration, check out these Invisible Nasties crafts)
- Post an image of that craft online (such as in a blog post, on Twitter or on Flickr or other publicly seen platform – use #invisiblenasties as a tag)
- Post a link back to your image in the InLinkz button below. Make sure the image is on a public platform so we can find a way to contact you if you win – or you can leave a comment with your email and your entry in the comment section as well. But linking your entry to InLinkz is mandatory
Prize: A custom-made Invisible Nasties t-shirt for your child and a $100 gift card will be sent to each winner.
We headed to our favorite store, Walmart, to check out the crafts section. We always make a pit stop here. You never know what new project ideas my pop up.
The Dollar Tree also is a great resource for craft supplies. We finished up our purchases there. Overall, we spent a total of $10 to make this entire craft. Here is what we used:
- 4 rubber balls
- pom poms
- pipe cleaners
- wiggly eyes
- a foil loaf pan
- a sword for Wii
- aluminum foil
We screwed. We cut. We poked. We created.
In the end, our goal of creating a huge tooth brush with a few invisible nasties was complete.
