For each Uncle Sam pin you will need:
A craft spoon
Googly eyes
A cotton ball
A top hat - you can make it from red, white, and blue paper pieces OR cut out a hat from white paper and have the kids color their own
Glue
Scissors
Magnet or pin for attaching to clothing
Black pen


First you make your hat.  We did paper pieces.  Our red was 2 x 1 1/2 in.  Our blue was 3/4 x 2 in.  Our white stripes were 2 x 1/4 in.  We then glued them together to make a hat.  Attach the hat to the handle of the wooden spoon.


Then glue on the eyes and with a black pen, draw on a nose.  Take some cotton off your cotton ball to make a beard.  Glue on the beard.


When dry, attach you magnet to the back of the pin.  You can use a pin if you wish.  We did two magnets since they do not damage clothing or children.  And after the holiday Uncle Sam can go on the fridge.


Have your say
