Day #2 Crafts: Cowgirl Neckerchiefs & Cowboy Sunsets
For the Neckerchiefs, You Will Need:
– Fabric cut into large squares (big enough to fold in half)
– Fabric Paint
– Optional: rubber fabric stamps
Prep work: My Camp Director cut out the fabric squares ahead of time and we made a painter’s palette for each group of two.
Whichever they chose, they all turned out beautiful and the kids were excited to wear them for the show!
|Some of the finished products – each unique!|
If you’re wondering what those orange circles are, they are the next craft – Cowboy Sunsets.
For the Cowboy Sunset craft, you will need:
– Coffee filters
– Food coloring droppers
– Paper plates
– A cowboy silhouette (found here)
– Glitter (optional)
Instructions for this craft can be found at Busy Bee Crafts, but I’ll show a little how we did ours. This was a 2-day craft since we had to let the coffee filters dry.
One at a time, the kids wet a coffee filter until it was soaked in the sink.
