February’s theme on Netflix ( we did this craft in February) is Destiny. They released some new shows for kids that are perfectly aligned with this theme (I’ll highlight those below).
We watched the Ever After High and made ‘destiny banners’. I encouraged my girls to think about their futures and ‘what they wanted to be and do when they grow up’ and how that means you control your future. Then we made these banners for fun to talk through some of their hopes and dreams.
Pull together some paper (printed and/or plain), a piece of cardboard (like a cereal box), stamps, stickers, markers, magazines, string, whatever you would like to use to create your banner.
Cut out a diamond shaped piece of cardboard to use as a stencil.
Cut out paper in the shape of the diamond and fold over to make your banner flags.
Have your child decorate the banner flags with stamps, stickers, drawings and magazine pictures that he or she would like to see themselves doing. Ivy chose to draw pictures of herself doing various things (being a singer and doing gymnastics).
After they are done decorating their flags fold them over a length of string evenly and staple the top two corners on to the string. Put a piece of tape at the bottom to keep the flags coming open. Then hang it in their bedroom or on their door!
