This is an easy craft to help kids get in on all that Halloween action. They can choose to make traditional Halloween characters, or run wild with their imagination.
More puppets, but this time we’re celebrating spring. It’s a great way for children to talk about the changes they’re seeing in nature; how plants are awakening, flowers are blooming, and little creatures are suddenly everywhere. They can use these observations to help them develop ideas for puppets.
Topographic maps provide us with a bird’s eye view of three dimensional surfaces. With the use of contour lines, shading, and precise measurements, these representations show us how land rises into rock formations, or slopes gently towards a stream. This project is a great accompaniment to lessons on topography, where children can apply their knowledge to create unique looking landscapes using layers of felt.
