I was looking around for some free printables that pertained to "Derby" for my sister's site freeprintablefun.org and found squat! So, being from a Kentucky AND having school aged nieces, and a cheap copy of Paint Shop...I can't let this happen! ((Mommy-Mode-Serious-Face On))
So, I have decided to make and offer up my own (not really great, but A for effort-style) Derby crafts. It started out small and then became a challenge...(I am easily distracted by fluttering lint balls and shiny things floating by at the same time), it is sometimes hard for me to keep on task.
In the end, this went from being a Derby Party for my family to being a whole "Derby Day-For-Grades- K-5" project! (Younger children will need much assistance!)
Okay Teachers, (or parent(s) who got the job of finding the games for parties...) here are a few things that I hope that you can incorporate into your festivities:
(7 Different Designs)Jockey Helmets
Note: cut 1/2-1 inch strips of blank paper(long ways), glue a strip to each side (on the back) of the cut-out "helmet", wrap around childs/adults (who's looking?!?) head, tape to fit. Wa-Laa!
teeheehee...my husband modeled this one for us when my toddler refused...please do not tell him I posted this!!! -------> (finished results)
