Cut Out Armband

Cut a ring about 1 1/2 inches wide from a cardboard tube or circular cardboard container. Some circular containers you can use are: a disposable cup, bread crumb container, frozen juice container, or potato chip tube. Be creative! Choose one with the proper diameter for your child's upper arm. If desired, cover the ring with a piece of colorful poster board.

Cut Out Salamander Shape

Draw a salamander shape on a piece of poster board, or use the pattern to trace a salamander shape. Cut out the shape and glue it onto the ring. (When using the pattern, you will cut out the body first, then add the four legs.)

Decorate Salamander

Let your child decorate the salamander with spots or stripes cut from sticky-back felt or other colors of poster board. Glue two eyes on the salamander's head.
