Craft Diary – 1st October – They seek her here, they seek her there, they seek her everywhere.

Although this week’s activity doesn’t quite fit in terms of creative literacy as the kids didn’t really interact with the story I was in need of a little light relief. In the last week we have launched 2 new stories, 4 new kits plus we had a exhibition stand at Childcare Expo with me running a workshop on creative literacy.

This week’s story was 006 and a Bit by Kes Gray and Nick Sharratt. This is part of the series about Daisy, in this book she pretends to be a spy but is very disappointed when no one understands her secret spy code until a mysterious stranger suddenly appears. Both the kids and I loved this story and had great fun with it. We chatted about pretending to be something we are not.

We made spy face masks to disguise oursleves. I gave the children this template Spy disguise template so they could choose glasses, noses, eyebrows and moustaches for their diguises and we stuck them onto paper plates.

As I usually do with face masks I mounted them onto wooden spoons. Some childre feel restricted when the masks are attached to them, Where as with them mounted onto spoons they can decide if they wish to be concealed. Here are some photos of our disguises. Can you tell which one is me?
