Have you been following election news with your child? Perhaps they accompanied you to vote in the primaries, or are studying it in school. Either way, if your child is interested in politics, he or she may enjoy creating this patriotic Future Voter Button Craft.
Future Voter Button
Perfect for little politicians, this Future Voter Button can easily be adapted for home or school.
Materials and Directions:
- red, white, and blue crepe paper
- black permanent marker
- plastic lid
- Future Voter insert
- red, white, and blue star star stickers
After gathering your supplies, cut streams of crepe paper (approximately 6 inches long) and tape them together. I placed the white piece of crepe paper in front, then taped the blue and red pieces of crepe paper behind it.
Tape the crepe paper streamers onto the back of the plastic lid, then write the child’s name.
Tape the Future Voter insert to the front of the plastic lid.
To make the insert, create a 3.5 inch circle on the computer, then use bold text to type Future Voter (I used a font called Impact) in the center of it. The size of your circle may need to be adjusted, depending on the size of the plastic lid you use in for this craft.
Invite your child to decorate their Future Voter Button with red, white, and blue star stickers, then attach the button to your child’s shirt with a piece of folded tape.
Isn’t it cute! Guaranteed to make neighbors smile on Election Day or any other patriotic holiday!
