(aquarium) gravel pentacles: Draw a pentacle on a nice piece of
cardboard. Have the child put white school glue along the lines of the
pentacle. Have them sprinkle fish gravel along the glue. Gently shake
off excess gravel, and let dry. |
print pentacles: Cut a potato in half. On the flat, round surface,
carve a pentacle with either a pencil or a toothpick. Make this pretty
deep. Have the child dip in paint, blot gently on a paper towel, and
print down on paper in any way they want.
Card Pentacles: Cut a circle out of heavy cardboard or posterboard.
Draw a pentacle onto it. Use a hole punch to punch holes all around the
pentacles cricle and along the pentagram star. Give the children a long
piece of yarn and tape the ends with masking tape to form a "needle."
Let the children practice "sewing" on the card.
Pentacles: Find a nice piece of pine wood, not bigger than 1 ft. by 1
ft. Drwa a pentacle on it with a pencil. Hammer nail into every angle,
and along the circle every inch or so. Give your child lots of rubber
bands and let them try to make all sorts of geometric designs. They can
take the rubber bands off and try other designs. This can also be done
with string instead of rubberbands.
You can even make a pentacle out of watermelon, cottage cheese, lettuce, and blueberries. Yum!
Pentacles: For younger children, draw a pentacle very lightly with a
pencil. Dilute white school glue with a little water. Pick out some
yarn. Cut into a piece long enough for the circle. Dip it in the glue
& water mixture. Put on the paper in a circle. Now cut a long piece
of yarn to make the pentagram inside the circle. Lay out on the paper
in the shape of a pentagram. Let dry.
pentacles: Make or purchase the clay of your choice. Roll into a thick
circle of clay. Draw a pentacle on a piece of paper the same size as
your clay. Use a pencil, toothpick to trace over a piece of paper onto
the clay in the shape of the pentacle. Let dry or bake according to the
directions for the clay you chose.
stick pentacles: (More proof that anything can be made out of Craft
sticks.) Make a pentagram by gluing popsickle sticks down on a nice
piece. then paint the pentagram and cardboard. You can paint a circle
around the pentagram to make it complete
