Materials needed: Hard paper (like pastel board or cardstock), scissors, glue, pen, googly eyes(optional)
Draw the animal faces on the appropriate colors (sorry these 2 pics are blurry!). You can also print these from free clipart online.
Cut them out (since Deen is still young I did the drawing and cutting for him but for older kids they would enjoy creating this whole bookmark themselves).
Cut some strips of paper for the bookmark.
This is how I presented the activity to Deen (2 1/2 years old).
He did the gluing and here is what we ended up with:
Variation: Instead of using googly eyes, draw in some eyes and then Laminate bookmarks for durability.
What is your favorite size of bookmark?
Here is my muffin tin for todays Circus Theme. Mondays have been such a busy day for us that I hardly have time to create my muffin tins.
For those of you who do not know how to make their own food picks here is how:
I printed out some free circus clip art that I found online (if you would like this clip art please let me know since I do have the combined cliparts saved).
Materials: printed clip art and 1 toothpick , colored pick, or bamboo skewer.
Make two holes, one at the top and one at the bottom.
Then pierce your toothpick/skewer into the top and out at the bottom…
There ya go, quick and easy.
To fit into our circus theme I then printed out a Circus clown activity page from here. (That website is great, there are a lot of activity pages although I had just found it today so I haven’t seen them all yet)
Since my son doesnt know how to color in the lines yet I just filled in the colors on the comp and cut them out for him. (hey, fun for me too!!)
Here is how I presented the activity:
Here is our finished activity
I cant wait to see what everyone else created for their Muffin Tin Monday Circus theme!
