Serving Little Hands and Feet

feet2Have your preteens dedicate a Sunday to making "Happy Feet" with children in your early childhood rooms.

You'll need scissors, markers, glue, and assorted colors of felt.

This project is simple, but it allows your preteens to serve their young friends. Just have preteens partner with a younger child to create fun little characters and shapes out of two layers of felt. As kids create, encourage them to get to know their new friends.

The overall characters should be no more than 3 inches in diameter. Glue the two layers of felt together, leaving a one-inch space in the center without glue. Once the character is complete and the glue dry, have preteens cut two small slits in the center of the back layer of the character wide enough for a buckle, Velcro strap, or shoestring to loop through. Finally slip the buckle, Velcro strap, or shoestring through the character's back to give little ones happy feet.
