Helpful Tip:

Voting is important and many young citizens don’t take advantage of the opportunity. Do your part to educate your child. This pin craft is creative, colorful and serves as a great classroom exercise.

How to make it

Place the juice can lid on to a piece of red felt. Trace the lid onto the felt and set aside.

Paint the juice can lid with white acrylic paint and set aside to dry.

Cut out the patterns, the larger piece from blue felt and the smaller piece from white felt.

Glue the white felt cutout onto the blue felt cutout.

Add another coat of white paint to the juice lid if needed and allow to dry.

Take the red felt that you traced the lid onto and cut a scallop (wavy) design around the trace line.

When juice lid is completely dry, glue it to the red scalloped felt.

Glue the blue and white felt to the back of the red felt.

Use a black marker to write “future voter!” on the juice lid.

Decorate with star stickers.

Glue a pin back to the back of the red felt and let dry.
