Combine three important family activities--dinner time, reading, and craft time--to create a fun diorama of your family’s favorite foods and traditions.
This is a terrific craft project for the entire family! Discuss your favorite foods, traditions, and special family times. Read a book together that celebrates food and family, such as Maya Angelou’s Angelina of Italy. Use your imagination to create a fun diorama depicting your special moments. Ours shows dinnertime. Use your imagination to make your diorama.
Decorate the scene. Remove the lid or have an adult cut off one side of a box. Fold and cut paper with Crayola® Scissors to cover it inside and outside. Draw a background scene with Crayola Twistables Colored Pencils and Crayola Washable Bold Markers. Attach the background to the box with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the glue.
Build furniture and structures. We used craft sticks, notched craft sticks, chenille stems and Crayola Model Magic to craft a picnic table, chairs, and a grape arbor. Model Magic that is fresh out of the pack sticks to itself and craft sticks.
Sculpt family members and favorite foods. Some techniques to try with Model Magic: roll, flatten and knead in color with Crayola Washable Markers. Cut strips with scissors. Crayola Naturals colors are perfect for skin and hair, even miniature pasta or pot
Add finishing touches. Glue the grape arbor to the box. Add chenille stem vines. Color grapes and flowers on coffee filters. Cut them out. Glue them all around your arbor. Air-dry the glue.
Make a tablecloth by coloring a paper towel. Set your table with all of your favorite family foods and MANGIA!
