Glue a piece of felt onto the inside of the lid of a small box. Shoes boxes and Nordstrom boxes work great. Make felt cut outs of animals, scenery, or whatever you choose for storytelling or for play. Then store the cutouts inside the box when not in use.
Supplies Needed; Brown and black paint, wiggly eye, paint brush and a brown pen.
Paint the child's hand brown and stamp it, thumb side down, on to a white paper. Use a finger tip, or paint brush to paint on two ears and allow the hand print to dry, then use brown pen to draw on mane. Paint on the bridal using black paint, and glue on wiggly eye. Allow to dry.
Here is an easy way to make a cute little rooster. We used a child's hand print for the comb, and scraps of red and orange for the beak.
Upload black and white photos of animals on your computer. Resize the photos so each one is no more than 5 inches tall and 3 inches wide, then press “Print.” Pass out the animals to the children. Have them cut out the animals, then color them with crayons or markers. Glue the animals to the tips of craft sticks and use them as puppets.
