paper plate craft – our mouths – we are wonderfully made!

Tomorrow at our toddler group we will be learning about our amazing bodies during story time. This is the craft to go with it. The children are 3 years old and under and their parent/carer usually sits with them at the craft table – so there should be lots of chat about the different food.

To do this all you need are – paper plates, pictures of food either from magazines or from the web cut out and glue sticks. Choose food that is familiar and a mixture of fruit and veg and the less healthy but yummy – in this case a cup cake. I avoided meat as I know we have children who wouldn’t be allowed certain meats.

Don’t put everything out on the craft table at once or most children won’t have anything left to use. Have a pencil handy so parents/carers can write the childs name on their plate but don’t leave this on the table – I did a few weeks ago and one child had a lot of fun drawing lines on all the paper!

You could do this with older children – use smaller pictures all on one page and get them to do the cutting out. They can select what they would like for their plate.

In the story time we are using a bible verse ‘I am ..wonderfully made.’ psalm 139:14. We left out the word fearfully just because the children are so young. This week we are thinking about our mouths – so everyone gets to SHOUT and whisper. We talk about eating – thus the craft. In our song time we sang ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star’ very quietly, ‘Row. row row your boat – with a scream for the crocodile. We did ‘horsey, horsey don’t you stop’ and made the clip, clop sounds with our mouths first.

Enjoy!
