This week’s workshop was Circus Fun – so we made a Jumping Clown (also called a Jumping Jack). The vocabulary for this project was body parts and to jump, so we sang the Hokey Pokey before getting started. Here’s a cute and funny version of the song:
To make the clown here is what you will need:
- clown template
- construction paper
- hole puncher
- brads (aka paper fasteners) click on the link if you don’t know what they are
Step 6: Glue the hat to the clown’s head. Glue the head to the clown’s body.
Step 7: Punch 2 holes into the arms and legs as indicated on the template. Punch holes on the clown’s body at shoulder and hip level.
Step 8: Line the bottom hole an arm or leg with the corresponding hole in the body, insert a brad and open. Do the same for all appendages.
Step 9: Thread a long piece of yarn through the top hole of each appendage and tie a knot at the bottom.
Step 10: Your clown is ready. Pull on the string and watch him (or her) jump!
