It's really simple idea and craft but very often the most simple ideas are the best!
It was such a popular craft for younger children that it’s one I’ve taken out and about again and again. Kids love to make their whole family so it’s worth printing out quite a few extra templates – and it’s a craft that can be used as a great learning tool for colours, families and body parts as well as exploring different textures. Older kids can also use it as a scissor practice exercise!
This is what you’ll need
Stiff a4 card
Pens or crayons
A box of different materials – fabric, card, papers,wool, tissue……..
Firstly, print out the A4 template below onto card – like I say it’s a good idea to print out a few! You should hopefully be able to copy and paste this template and then resize it if needed - if not then you can download templates elsewhere or just draw your own person!
Let your child get creative with the template, materials and glue – dress it, colour it in, add hair (or not!).
You can either leave the person as he/she is on the card – or try cutting it out to make a cardboard doll!
