Are you crafty? Does the thought of construction paper, glue, crayons, and scissors make you smile?
Or … are you a crafting disaster? Do you avoid crafts for fear your home might descend into chaos as glitter and paper scraps find their way into every corner?
If you’re a child sponsor, it doesn’t matter — kids don’t care! Don’t let your crafting skills keep you from sending your sponsored child a homemade gift.
Here’s a simple, family-friendly craft that you can send to your sponsored child. This zebra puppet tutorial comes from the blog I Heart Crafty Things, which is full of ideas for easily shipped crafts.
What you’ll need:
• White construction paper
• Black yarn or ribbon
• A black marker
• Optional: one googly eye
• Optional: a large hole punch
When life gets busy, it’s easy to let things like writing your sponsored child fall through the cracks. But simple crafts like this one make it fun and stress-free. And they mean the world to your sponsored child because they show how much you care.
