How to get the most out of this activity.
I did this activity with Grace (7) and Ayla (2). I laid everything out on the table and explained what the yellow paper could be used for but that is just one idea. Grace chose to stick the paper so it was flat and made a rabbit but then stuck the folded paper inside the card and wrote little notes. Ayla stuck her paper all over her piece of card (which is fine too!). She then wanted to help me make mine which is where I guided her to stick the paper into the circle I had drawn. We spoke about the glue being sticky and how the paper looked like feathers.
Crafts are great for sparking imagination as well as developing fine motor skills. I tend to step back during crafts and let them explore the materials they have, I do however offer guidance if they show interest.
