An Adoption at the Movies reader who blogs at Parents of Color Seek Newborn to Adopt recently created an emotional tachometer for kids, inspired by a review of Planes: Fire and Rescue. She has lots of great pictures of the craft-in-progress, too. With her kind permission, here is a re-post of her post. Happy crafting!
I read a review of Planes Fire and Rescue at Adoption at the Movies and it gave me the inspiration to create a feeling faces tachometer. If you want to know why please read the review on Adoption at the Movies. If you’d like to view the amazing feeling faces tach, please forge ahead!
These are the materials I used. They are all things that I found around the house. #UpCycle
Print out of feeling faces tach that I made in Fireworks
Cardboard from baby mittens wrapping
Old business card
Elmer’s spray glue
Cut out the tach and glue it to your piece of scrap cardboard.
Cut out the tach.
Color a long stripe on the business card. You’ll use this for the arrow.
Cut the red stripe off. Cut the two top corners off the top. Viola! An arrow!
It would have been great if I would have though to bring my hole-punch earlier.
Place your arrow where you’d like it on the tach and punch a hole.
My tach is happy that this project is complete!
Here is the feeling faces tachometer that I made on my computer in case you’d like to make your own.
