Activities

Printing

Make hand prints. You will need some washable poster paints, some paper plates and some sheets of plain paper (bigger is better). Pour a layer of each colour paint onto a separate plate. Put your hand, palm downwards, onto one of the plates, then press it onto a sheet of paper to make a print. Now let your imagination loose! Make patterns with your hand prints, or pictures. Try it with your fingers together as well as apart. What happens if you print one colour over another?


Baking

Bake some biscuits and decorate them with happy faces. There's an easy recipe to follow here.


Hens

Visit a farm or a petting zoo and look
at the hens. Talk about what you can
see - their feathers, what colour they
are, what they eat, what we get from
hens, etc. When you get home, make
a picture of a hen. Click here to
download a hen drawing. Colour or
paint her beak, legs, comb and the
grass. Then paste some PVA glue on her body and stick some feathers on. (You should be able to get packs of feathers form craft shops. Finish your picture with a wiggly eye.

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King’s horses
And all the King’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
