Fluffy Head

Materials

  1. Large paper bag
  2. White glue
  3. Cotton balls
  4. White tissue paper
  5. Felt pen

Directions

Place paper bag over child's head and mark where his eyes and armholes are with a felt pen. Remove bag and use scissors to cut out the holes for eyes and arms. Place bag over the back of a chair so that you can walk around it while doing the activity. Dip cotton balls into a saucer of diluted white glue and then stick each one onto the bag. Scrunch pieces of tissue paper into balls or wads and glue them on top for ears, or elsewhere to cover gaps among cotton balls. When the entire bag is covered and the glue has dried, the child can wear it to play in.

Keep it hot (or cold)! No one likes cold soup or warm, wilted salad. Use a thermos or ice pack in your child's lunch box to help keep his lunch fresh until it's time to eat.
