Physical Challenge:
  • Construction paper (blue & other colors)
  • Glue
  • Markers or crayons, including green ones
  • 2 popsicle sticks
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
Fold Paper

Fold a standard 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of construction paper in half. Blue paper works best because it looks like a jeans pocket.

Cut Out Rectangle

On another sheet of blue construction paper, help your child to measure a 4" x 5" rectangle. Cut out the rectangle. Have your child draw a pocket design on one side of the rectangle.

Glue Rectangle Onto Card

On the other side of rectangle, carefully squeeze a line of glue along three edges. (Note that the glue should go on both 4" sides and one 5" side.) Glue the rectangle onto the card with the open side up so that it makes a pocket.

Add Flowers
  • Have your child draw flowers on the other colors of construction paper. Help him/her to cut the flowers out.
  • Color the popsicle sticks green.
  • Glue the flowers to the ends of the popsicle sticks. Put the flowers in the pocket, and write a special note inside the card.
