Make and Take Craft: Build Your Own Robot
-googly eyes or eye stickers
-pipe cleaners (cut in half)
Process: Before story time I covered each paper cup in tin foil (if my kids were a little older I would have had them do it themselves), after story time I passed out the cups, stickers, pipe cleaners and eye stickers and let the kids go crazy. Adults helped poke pipe cleaners through the cups and everything else was pretty easy for the kids to handle on their own. The sheer variety of end results from the same starting point was wonderful to see.
Time: Prep took 25 minutes and the craft took 45.
