So, what are you waiting for?
Let’s make a Mother Goose nursery rhyme craft!
Craft items you will need:
- Paper plate
- Grey paint
- Black marker
- Googly eyes
- Construction paper
Have the children draw a round circle on the back of a paper plate. This will be the Kitten’s face.
Next, have the children glue googly eyes on the Kitten’s face.
Then, have the children draw a nose and mouth on the Kitten’s face.
Once done, using grey paint, have the children paint all around the Kitten’s face. It’s okay if the children end up with paint on the Kitten’s face. We did with ours!
While the paint is drying, have the children draw and cut out 2 mittens from construction paper.
When the paint is dry, have the children glue the mittens to back of the paper plate.
And, voila, the children have now made a Nursery Rhyme craft!
We hope you’ll find a lot of ways to use the Three Little Kittens song as a teaching tool at home or in the classroom with kids of all ages.
