Craft 1: Easy Shapes Baker's Hat - Ages 2+

Objectives:
Practice Shapes: Square & Circles, Scissor Cutting Skills (3.5+), Counting, Small Motor Skills, Optional: Introduce or Practice Letter Bb, Color: White

  • Print the Baker's Hat Template with instructions. Print on white construction paper or card stock.  No coloring required.
  • Ahead of time cut strips of white paper 3" to 4" tall to make head bands that are 22 to 24 inches long - the assembled hat will be glued onto the headband. Two bands cut on paper lengthwise is the right size, tape together.
  • Cut out the small illustration on the template and set next to the child as a guideline of how the hat looks when assembled.
  • The instructions will help you with shape, number and letter B introduction/practice.
  • Children and educator can wear the hat during the nursery rhyme reading and other related activities.
Craft 2:  Easy Baker Hand Puppet or Stand-up Figure -  Ages 2+
  • Print out this one puppet template for one child or this two puppet template if many puppets are needed for a larger group. Ideally print on sturdy paper: construction or card stock in a pastel color or light color such as yellow, pink, light orange, so children can use white chalk, pastel or crayons to color the baker's clothing.
  • This is a good opportunity for scissor cutting practice along the dashed outline. Provide assistance as needed.
  • Letter B practice: You may want to write letter B or Baker on the image prior to distributing, and motivate the children to trace the letter B.
  • Glue or tape a Popsicle stick/craft stick or against a toilet paper tube and the children can hold and use during the reading of the nursery rhyme later.
