Character models - In The Night Garden

Introduction

This big make will challenge your child's problem-solving skills and help improve their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they draw, cut, paint, decorate and stick a range of materials to create the characters from In The Night Garden. They can experiment with different colours, shapes and textures along the way. It's a complicated task so you'll need to be on hand throughout to provide support and encouragement.

How to extend the magic

Have a little role play game with your child. Pretend that the characters have come to life! Ask them some questions (eg 'Oh hello Iggle Piggle, how are you today? Have you been for a ride in the Ninky Nonk?), and then see if your child can answer those questions in the voices of the character you speak to. You should share a few giggles together as you act out some conversations with the inhabitants of the Night Garden.
