Sticky Easel

I popped over to Pink Stripey Socks awhile back and was inspired by a craft they
                  did.  It was simple; add yarn to faces for hair.

Instead of doing it as a craft I set it up on the easel with sticky paper.  The
sticky paper is mac tac and it’s facing out so the yarn will stick to it but can be
                             peeled off again and again.

           I used the lower easel so the toddlers could reach it.

It gave us an opportunity to talk about hair.  About different colours, where it
              grows on different faces and is all hair straight.

                       Each day the faces looked different.


  1. Oh my gosh. This looks like a blast!! I hope you'll share this at the After School Linky Party on Monday. Kids of all ages would love this!

  2. Great idea! I am always impressed by the way you take an activity and modify it to make it work in your centre, where you have large numbers of children and such an age range.

    1. Thanks Terri. It can be a challenge. I like stretching ideas to see how they work - they don't always.
