Habitat Crafting in School
Last week we took a trip out of the office to go and have a fun morning of crafting with Year 2 children at Holy Family School, Barrow-in-Furness.
Mrs McGuire and the fab team of teachers and helpers wanted the kids to create something special to tie in with their recent topic on habitats.
Claire came up with this brilliant idea to turn empty cereal boxes into a woodland scene, complete with 3D creatures.
After cutting the boxes open, out came the paints and we all got stuck in creating the backdrop for our woodland habitats.
While the boxes were drying in the corner, each child opened the envelope of cut outs we provided – very curious to know what we were going to do next! They were thrilled to discover that by simply using sections of loo-roll, egg boxes and card, we could make some very cute creatures, and trees too. It was great to see all their foxes, rabbits, deer and birds, proudly displayed at the end of the session.
To go with the craft, we brought along our Habitat Worksheet for the children to enjoy. In true Felltarn Friends style, it’s packed full of games and puzzles, facts and fun.
The session was such a success that we have been invited invited back for more creative crafting session with their Year 1 and Reception class children. We – can’t wait!
Our habitat activity sheet was perfect for the class to enjoy
