I looked after my friend’s little girl for an hour the other day while her mother went to an appointment, and while we were doing some drawing we made this Incy Wincy Spider Rhyme Wheel which Little Pea has been loving ever since (she points at it and shouts Dee Die Der!).
You will need:
- Two paper plates
- Crayons/Pencils/Felt Tips
- Split pin paper fasteners
- Some sticky tape to secure the back of the split pin
By cutting a section out of a paper plate and drawing four scenes from Incy Wincy Spider on the paper plate underneath, the top plate can be rotated to show a different picture for each key moment in the rhyme: the spider climbing the spout, the rain falling down and washing the spider away, the sun drying up the rain and the spider recovering from its ordeal.
This worked really well for a nursery rhyme storyboard but I reckon the idea would be great for illustrating the changing seasons for an older child as well. Can you think of any stories or concepts that would work well in paper plate form?
