This month our theme is Polar Bears and Penguins. We are practicing the “P” sound and reading books that accentuate the letter P, or are about polar bears or penguins. This week we worked on this polar bear mask. I like crafts that take a couple days and the children get to wait to see the fruit of their labor. 🙂
When I am trying to think up a craft, I do a google image search on what I’m interested in, like in this case, “polar bear crafts for preschool.” I saw this one in my search and decided it would be an easy one to do that the kids would enjoy. So, here is how we did it.
They are going to keep these here for the month for other activities with our theme (games, stories, etc). This allowed them practice with small motor development, hand eye coordination, we were able to talk about and point out body parts, shapes, identify the color white, articulate “po-lar,” stress the “p” sound, and feel sensory items. This was a fun one that we’ll do each year. 🙂
