Lucky me found a few animal theme book from Eric Carle for our Zoo week! I love his books, it is so creative and kid’s friendly!
Inspired by the book we made a related craft. I first traced each kid’s foot or paper then cut some ears, horns and a neck. We used the foot for the head, yarn and finger prints for the spots.
Then we learned about the flamingo, had a contest to see who could hold the flamingo pose the longest (it wasn’t me).
Then we made this “hand print number 4 feathery bird”.
We also made those funny looking penguins and played this custom made penguin game with a dice. How fun mathematics can get?
Then we read a book about parrots, learn where than hang out, where they sleep and what they eat.
After making the puppet…
we each had a turn at playing the parrot role and asking the others : are you a fruit, a nut or a flower? After the answered the parrot had to eat them (it’s when the chasing was happening) Lots of fun!
There was also animals potato paw print…
