child-friendly instruction cards set MAKE IT MYSELF for DT/ art/ craft area

child-friendly instruction cards set MAKE IT MYSELF for DT/ art/ craft area

The “I Can Make It Myself” Set • A set of cards to print and display for children to use without adult support as inspiration for what to make with craft resources • Literacy links- using instructions in a practical context • Design, art and junk modelling links-hands on making • Independent play • Open ended- children have artistic license to extend the idea and adapt it making links to other skills and experiences • Follow up with a discussion of how they did it/ what went well/ what they could do to make it even better A set of 4 open ended makes that open up a wide range of possibilities for how children expand upon the original idea. Tried and tested in real classrooms with real children of a range of abilities, these are basic skills that let children use their imagination. They free children from relying on templates and encourage them to make it from scratch all by themeselves. (We trust our children to use the stapler after teaching them how to be careful with it.) After teaching a child the simple method for making her own boxes she amazed me by cutting a hole in the bottom and inserting a lolly stick with a beautifully drawn and carefully cut out person stuck to it and declaring she made a 'jack in the box'. Characteristics of effective learning in action! Why not send them home as fun homework? Laminate them for display or put them together as a book of inspiration for children to look through. A great resource for imaginative fun. The set includes: *binoculars *watch *puppet *box
