Around the different holidays I scour some of my favorite websites looking for activities to do with my children. Since our children are younger and have special needs, I prefer activities that are multi-sensory.
Our Stovepipe Hats:
|1. Long piece of construction paper|
cut in half lengthwise, then rolled
up and attached.
|2. Trace two circles on another piece of black |
construction paper (inner circle should be the
same size as the top of the hat).
|3. Starting at the center of the inner circle|
cut circle in eighths then fold pieces back.
|Glue to top piece.|
(looking a little like the mad-hatter)
Here are a few links of some of the activities I discovered:
