Crafty Critterz – Arctic Window

It’s chilly outside, so why not stay warm indoors and make an appropriately “cool” craft? Make your own version of the Polar Bear’s special item — the Arctic Window — with these instructions from our archive.  

What you need:

  • 1 white 3×5 index card
  • White packing peanuts
  • Dark blue paint
  • Salt
  • Glue
  • Other paint colors for the Northern Lights

What you do:

  1. Paint the index card dark blue and let dry.
  2. Put a thin layer of glue on the bottom portion of the card and cover in salt. This will be the snow-covered ground.
  3. Paint the Northern Lights onto the sky.
  4. Break up the packing peanuts and glue them around the edges of the index card.
Hang your Arctic Window with some sticky tac or adhesive tape!

Do you have a great idea for a craft, recipe or party game? We’d love to hear them!
