    Seven Swans a-Swimming Craft

    Seven Swans a-Swimming Craft

    On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me seven swans a-swimming, six geese a-laying, five gold rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree. For the seventh day of Christmas this year, my daughter and I made seven paper swans swimming in paper water.

    Materials

    Instructions

    1. Cut seven circles from the white paper.
    2. Cut a wedge from the circles to form a thick G shape.
    3. Cut seven tiny triangles from the orange paper.
    4. Draw a black dot with the black marker on the long end of each white swan shape.
    5. Glue an orange triangle to the back of each swan head.
    6. Use the blue marker to draw wiggly waves on the blue paper.
    7. Glue the swans to the blue paper.
    8. Display the seven swans a-swimming.
