Baa Baa Black Sheep Lolly-stick Puppet Show!

Posted on Updated on

IMG_4767We had so much fun making these! After we were done, we had a little ‘puppet’ show! How? We sang the Baa Baa Black Sheep song, of course! πŸ™‚ The kids couldn’t wait to perform it at home too πŸ™‚

It’s very simple! Just print out the pictures from this template, cut it out, then stick it on a lolly/ice-cream stick. And voila! Your puppets πŸ™‚

To perform:

1) We need at least 2 people.

2) Go behind a cabinet. Make sure you aren’t seen by the audience πŸ™‚

2) Sing baa baa black sheep and pop out each character as you sing the song. For example, when you sing “baa baa black sheep”, show the sheep; “one for my master”, show the master and so on πŸ™‚

Happy making and performing!

I Can Sing A Rainbow

Posted on Updated on

IMG_4744I love the “I can sing a rainbow” song (You can find it on youtube :)) and missed singing it with the kids from my previous school, so I decided to teach it to this new group too. To reinforce what we learned, we made this rainbow craft. It’s really simple.

Materials needed:Β paper plate, pictures of stuff we see in the sky (we had a sun, hot air balloon, and a plane. Template below)

To-do:Β Cut the paper plate into half. Draw the outlines for the colors of the rainbow.

Instructions:

1) Color the rainbow

2) Color the sun, hot air balloon and a plane. You can add the clouds too, which my kids did πŸ™‚ OR you can use cotton balls πŸ™‚

3) Cut out the pictures.

4) Glue them on the rainbow πŸ™‚

Template for the pictures:Β I can sing a rainbow template Have fun! πŸ™‚

Another Elmer the Elephant craft idea :)

Posted on

IMG_4739As I was browsing the net for some craft ideas, I stumbled across a few that inspired me and gave me this idea for Elmer the Elephant πŸ™‚ (I’ve done another craft for the Elmer and the Lost Teddy Bear. You can find it here.)

This one’s pretty straight-forward really.

This is the template:Β Elmer craft

To make it more ‘fun’ I used the fasteners for Elmer’s ears so the kids can move them up and down πŸ™‚

Great children’s books to check out and read-aloud to your kids! :)
