About this activity
Join in with your little one and make a paper plate puppet of Kwazii - one of the favourite Octonauts characters! Follow the step by step instructions of painting, cutting and sticking and have great fun getting creative together!
You will need a variety of materials to make this, but most should be easily found around the home. It's a great opportunity to work together with your child and get them to explore and express their own ideas in different ways, using all of their senses. You can ask them to explaing to you what they are doing and what needs to be done next, encouraging them to take the lead in the project and you to follow their instructions. This will help them with leadership skills and thinking ahead - as well as allowing them to take more ownership of their work, which will feel very rewarding once it's completed.
Why not give it a go one rainy weekend - it's the perfect chance to play together!
