Upcycled Lacing Card Craft {Book Extension Activity} #ChickfilamomsDIY

As part of the Chick-fil-A Moms Panel, I received a coupon for soup to use in this upcycled soup container craft. All opinions are mine.

Signs of spring are starting to show here in Pennsylvania.  One of our favorite things to do in spring is visit a farm and see the new baby animals.  We also read some great books about animals and do some fun extension activities with my two girls.

One of our favorite books is Barnyard Song by Rhonda Gowler Greene, illustrated by Robert Bender.  My preschooler loves making all the barnyard animal noises!   One of her favorite animals is the cow, and what do you know, I'm a Chick-fil-A mom!  The mom panel was recently challenged to come up with an idea to upcycle a chicken tortilla soup container.  



I took AB's love for cows and came up with a DIY Lacing Card with her favorite animal.   Lacing cards are great fine motor skill practice and are fun to take along on car trips or doctor's appointments to keep your preschooler occupied.  My six year old even enjoys it!

Here are the steps to make your own cow themed Lacing Card Upcycled Craft {Book Extension Activity}:



Materials:
One Chick-Fil-A chicken tortilla soup container
Modpodge
White Glitter Glue (we chose Glow-in-the-dark)
White Acrylic Paint
Paper Plate 
Drill with small bit
Small paintbrush
Cow template
Scissors
Shoelaces 


Step 1:  Wash out the soup container and let air dry.

Step 2:  Drill the holes for lacing around the sides of the soup container.  These can be spaced however you wish.

Step 3:  Print and cut out the face from the cow template (I downloaded and resized to 300x409 in picmonkey.com and cut off the horns).  Then color with crayons and paint over it with white glitter glue (you will want to do a thin layer so it isn't lumpy).  Let dry completely.

Step 4:  Paint the base of the container with white acrylic paint allowing for black cow spots.  The photo below is one coat. Ours took 3 coats; let paint dry about an hour between each coat.

Step 5:  Paint white glitter glue over the white areas on all sides.  This provides texture and sparkle.  If you use glow-in-the-dark glitter glue, it is even more fun (though to have a really dark glow, you will need to do several light coats)!  Let dry overnight.

Step 6:   Attach the cow face to the bottom of the base using modpodge.  There is a square gap in the base, so your cow will need to fit over the gap.  Allow an hour or two to dry completely.

Step 7:  Your child is ready to begin lacing.  It's best to start a hole from the inside of the container so that your lace will end inside and can be stored with the lid sealed on top.  You can store other colored laces too.

I hope you enjoy making this Upcycled Lacing Card Craft/Book Extension Activity with your preschoolers.  It can be used with other books about farm animals too.
