We like to get our little guy involved in the excitement so that he can have fun as well. The good news is that kids will be enthralled with their new toy, you might even get to watch the game without a million questions.
Making this DIY foam finger and megaphone craft for kids is a great way to keep any little one engaged during the game. Plus I’m pretty sure every adult will have to try out the styrofoam megaphone at some point during the game!
How to make a DIY Foam Finger
2 12”x18” foam sheets
Hot glue & gun
- Hand draw a template of a finger on regular paper. Cut it out and then trace onto the foam sheets.
- Cut out the finger on foam sheets.
- Add hot glue to the edge of one of the finger and leaving the bottom of the hand without glue.
- Press the two pieces together.
- Add on your #1 sticker or anything you choose to decorate it with.
Megaphone Craft for Kids
- With exacto knife, cut out the bottom of the cup.
- Cut a strip of tissue paper the length of the top of the cup. Cut tiny strips half way and crinkle or twist.
- Add a thin layer of Modge Podge around the top of the cup and place the fringed tissue paper.
- Add stickers for decoration.
Pro Tip: If you don’t have a styrofoam cup, you can cut out poster board to make a cone shape. Instead of stickers, have kids cut out designed on a sheet of paper and have them glue on the megaphone.
