Election day fun for the FUTURE VOTERS

Ok all you crafty Moms!
if you're looking for something fun to do with your kids to commemorate one of the most memorable general elections in recent memory, here are some fun ideas for
Mom & Me time!
(courtesty of

What you'll need:

* Frozen juice can lid
* White acrylic paint
* Paintbrush
* Felt: red, white and blue
* Scissors
* Glitter star stickers
* Pin back
* White craft glue
* Black marker
* Pattern

How to make it:

1. Place the juice can lid on to a piece of red felt. Trace the lid onto the felt and set aside.
2. Paint the juice can lid with white acrylic paint and set aside to dry.
3. Cut out the patterns, the larger piece from blue felt and the smaller piece from white felt.
4. Glue the white felt cutout onto the blue felt cutout.
5. Add another coat of white paint to the juice lid if needed and allow to dry.
6. Take the red felt that you traced the lid onto and cut a scallop (wavy) design around the trace line.
7. When juice lid is completely dry, glue it to the red scalloped felt.
8. Glue the blue and white felt to the back of the red felt.
9. Use a black marker to write “future voter!” on the juice lid.
10. Decorate with star stickers.
11. Glue a pin back to the back of the red felt and let dry.


* Voting is important and many young citizens don’t take part. Do your part to educate your child about the importance of voting.
* If you don't have a juice lid, you can always use a round of white felt for the center of the pin and fabric paint to write on the felt instead of using marker on the juice lid.
