Clown Ruffle Collar
Need: coffee filters and food coloring
Have children color the coffee filters by dipping them into colored
water. Lay flat to dry. When dry fold the coffee filters in half and tape them together in a
line. Wonderful clown collar for a child to wear.
Need: Paper Plate, scrap pieces/collage material
Set the scrap pieces and collage material in bowls or paper plates
on the table. Give each child a paper plate and let them glue collage
materials onto the paper plates to create a clown.
Cut shapes (circles, triangles, rectangles,etc) out of construction
paper in a variety of colors and sizes. Have the children glue the
shapes on pieces of construction paper to create clown faces.
Start at the top of a empty paper towel roll and glue on pink or blue
cotton balls. Cover about 3/4 of the roll. To color cotton balls
place in a baggie with powered tempera paint and shake.
Need: construction paper, laminate sheets, magnets, patterns or simple drawings
Make a large face on white construction paper, laminate,
and add magnet to back. Next draw simple, but not too small nose, eyes, mouth, ears, hat, ruffle, bow, flower, etc. Copy these to
different colors of construction paper.
Make A Clown Face
Cut, (can have older children help) laminate, add magnets to backs of
these as well. When magnet glue is dry, hang these items
on frig or magnet board.
Allow the children to take turns creating their own clown, take apart, then starting over again. (Kind of like a Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, but a clown.) The kids love it and it is really good for teaching colors, parts of face, emotions, and occupies while waiting to go to the restroom or a turn at the clay table. If you try using sheet magnets, instead of the
smaller, even toddlers can enjoy this as well. Contributed by: Shelley

Draw A Clown
Give each child 1 crayon and a sheet of white paper. Then have the
children draw what you say: Display the children's clowns.
Draw a circle round and big.
Add a few hairs as a wig.
Make a circle for a nose.
Now a smile, broad and wide.
Put an ear on either side.
Add some eyes, but not a frown.
Now you have your very own clown.
Provide face paint for animal and clown faces. Have children act out
animals and circus acts. Lay a jump rope on the floor for the tight
rope, hula hoops to jump through.
Jump Through Fire Hoops
Wrap red, yellow, and orange crepe paper around hula hoops. Let small
bits of the crepe paper dangle into the hoop. Hold the hoop
vertically and let the children jump through the hoops.
Place a pear in the middle of a plate. Sprinkle grated cheese on the
pear for hair. Add raisin eyes, a raisin mouth, and a cherry nose.
Make a ruffle collar from a lettuce leaf.
Go to rummage sales, Salvation Army, and Goodwill, and pick up old
bathing suits, sparkly clothes, boas. They make terrific outfits for
the TIGHT ROPE WALKERS to wear as they cross the balance beam! Contributed By: Laura
