Directions for A House for Hermit Crab Puppet Activity
Have your camper paint each of the images on the page as creatively as they want to. For bigger kids you can print out separate pages for each. For younger children you can just made them all on one page to keep their attention. I love this activity because it works for so many ages!
Then once they are dry you can cut out the images. If you want to attach them to popsicle sticks to create puppets to retell the story.
Directions for A House for Hermit Crab Movement Game
Let’s get moving! Using inspiration from our little sea creatures let’s retell the story on a big scale level with our bodies. Have your child act out the animals as they are drawn form the pile.
Print your own Movement Cards
Print Your Own Beach Inspired Kids Yoga Poses from Kids Yoga Stories Too!
Build Literacy into this Activity
Have your child match the cards to the puppets! You could also introduce beginning letter sounds or word cards too. 3 Dinosaurs has some great printables to go with this idea!
