ROOOAAAR! Hello Kids Club families! World book day is celebrated in March and it's a time for us to think about our favourite stories and bury our noses in our favourite books. Lillie is here this month with a tiger mask craft that you can make really simply at home, because one of Lillie's favourite stories is The Tiger Who Came To Tea by Judith Kerr.
Watch the video below to find out how Lillie made her mask and make sure you're sitting comfortably as she reads The Tiger Who Came To Tea as well!
Earn your stripes and watch the video!
We hope you enjoyed that story and are totally inspired to create your own tiger mask! Read on to find out the instructions on how to make your own mask using a paper plate!
What You Will Need:
- A paper plate
- Orange paint or orange colouring in pens
- Glue dots or a glue stick
- Scissors (and adult supervision)
- Black card
1. Start by painting/colouring most of your mask in orange. Leave a white space for the tiger's mouth and eyes.
2. Next cut out some strips of black card (with an adult's supervision!) These will be the tiger's stripes and whiskers. Create a small nose shape for your tiger too.
3. Using glue dots or a glue stick, add your stripes, whiskers and nose onto your tiger's face. Feel free to cut out the eye holes on your tigers face once your paint is dry or you can even draw eyes onto your mask if you'd rather. And ta da! You have created your own totally roarsome mask inspired by the hungry tiger in the story of The Tiger Who Came to Tea!
Well there you go, Kids Club families! Your very own tiger masks! We really hope you enjoyed story time with Lillie today too, keep an eye out if that greedy tiger comes knocking at your door, make sure you have well stocked cupboards!
If you have created your very own beanstalk please send us any pictures of your completed crafts to our social media channels. Find us at @SouthsideSW18.
See you soon Kids Club families!
