|This is probably the most traditional of crafts for making a moving body – using split pins!
I found lots of characters online but ended up drawing my own as many were very difficult to cut out. The PDF template page with instructions is available at the end of the post.
|To make this craft you will need the 1 page template printout, scissors, and some split pins (brads).|
|Cut out all the shapes along the black lines. If you have younger children you may want to pre-cut the shapes for them. Each child will also need 5 split pins, or 4 if you wish to glue the head.|
|Find the stars on the ends of the limbs and edges of the body. Line up the stars with a standard size hole punch. You may need to remove the tray to see.|
|The hole punch will be the right size for standard split pins to be put through. If you don’t have a hole punch you can just make a small hole with a pencil.|
|Staring with the neck and head, line up the two holes and attach with a split pin. Bending the arms of the pin out as flat as possible. Continue round the body. You may want to attach one end of the pin to each limb with a little tape.|
I am tracing anout Unity in Romans 14 to kindergartens and would like some activities to taking with the lesson. Your suggestions would be much appreciated.
So sorry Blondell, I missed this message in the general chaos of everyday life. I have some kindergarten resources but most are aimed at an older age. I frustratingly don’t have anything ready in my arsenal of material or ideas to adapt I could pass on to you right now.
