Circle Pink Panther Craft
Shapes, Scissor Skills, Colors, and Counting Practice
Contributed by Leanne Guenther
This craft can be used to teach a variety of skills. You don't
have to use all the thoughts for lessons... just choose the ones you're
working on with your child.
Materials you'll need: scissors, glue, printer, paper
Thoughts for Lessons:
- This craft has lots of nice large circles to cut out -- good scissor practice!
- You can precut the template into separate pieces (roughly) to make
it a bit easier for beginning crafters to cut out the circles.
- have the children make a pile of all the circles. Brainstorm
items in the household that are also circles (a plate for example)
- verbally instruct the children on how to assemble the shapes using
the colors of the shapes. (ie: Take the black circle and glue it
on the pink circle.).
- show the children two circles and ask -- is this one bigger, smaller
or the same size as that one.
- Count the circles.
- Count the circles of various sizes
- Glue the medium black circle onto the large pink circle.
- Glue the medium white circle under the medium black circle.
- Glue two of the medium pink circles on either side of the nose/mouth
(black and white) circles
- Glue the other two medium pink circles onto the top of the head.
Glue the two small black circles (eyes) onto the head.
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
