Leaf Puppets

November 16, 2018

What you need: 

Large leaves of assorted shapes, colours and sizes 

Wooden lolly sticks

Double sided sticky tape

Goggle eyes (self adhesive are the easiest to work with!)

Wooden ladybirds / insects 

Flower heads (we used giant daisies)

What they do: 

Chose a special leaf

Decorate your leaf with goggle eyes and any decorations that you wish (we used flowers and wooden ladybirds to keep it simple, but let them go to town!)

Wrap a piece of double sided sticky tape around the top of each wooden lolly stick

Stick your leaf to your lolly stick and let them PLAY! 


What we learn:

We develop our fine motor skills

We explore textures

We practise our communication and negotiation skills 

We encourage new vocabulary and grow in self confidence
