Development matters: begin to try out a range of tools and techniques safely (30-50 months); construct with a purpose in mind, using a variety of resources (40-60+ months).

Early learning goal: select the tools and techniques they need to shape, assemble and join materials they are using.

What you need

Group size: small group.

Home-made puppets; clean socks; felt scraps; buttons; cardboard tubes; felt-tipped pens; card; doweling rods; collage materials; glue; sticky tape; scissors; your ‘Animal heads’ activity sheet.
