Cool down and get creative at the same time with our fun fan craft. Get creative with the design and don’t forget to send us a picture.
Materials: A paper plate, paint, paintbrush, 2 wooden craft sticks, glue
Main Learning Outcomes: Developing fine motor skills, fosters creativity and early literacy skills
1. Start by sitting down and reading ‘On a Hot Summer Day’. If you don’t have this book, listen along on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4oL3vTVu9o
Start out by cutting the paper plate in half, (keep little fingers out of the way of scissors!)
Paint your fan with whatever design you like - we went for a watermelon!
Glue together 2 craft sticks in a V shape. Wait for the glue and paint to dry.
Put 3 dots of glue on the ends of the craft sticks and stick them to the back of your fan.
Once the glue is dry, you’re all done!
If you would like to use your fan to cool down, use clear tape to make sure the sticks don’t break off.
