Homestead - Koala Brothers

Introduction

Constructing this make is a great way of helping your child to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they draw, cut, paint, decorate and stick a range of materials to create the Homestead. 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 help and encouragement.

How to extend the magic

Explain that kangaroos and koalas are types of animals which come from Australia. Describe what the animals are like and find some pictures to show your child. You could then pretend to be two bouncy kangaroos leaping across the Outback. BOING, BOING, BOING!
