INSIDE: Paper Plate Tiger pouch is a fun and easy craft for preschoolers and older kids to make. It is super easy to make and a great activity to combine with a zoo themed unit or when learning about wild animals. It is also fun for the Lunar New Year in 2022 – The Year of the Tiger!
Exciting Sensory Bins for Curious Kids
Boring afternoons are made exciting with awesome animal-based bins, like Salty Shark Bay or Yarn Farm. Pretend play bins like Birthday Cake Sensory Play or Bubble Tea Party encourage creativity and imagination. And your kids will have so much fun they won’t even know they’re getting smarter with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities like Sink or Float Soup, Magnetic Letter Hunt or Ice Cream Scoop and Count.
Paper Plate Tiger Pouch Craft
Grab your paper plate and paint it orange it on the under side. Set it aside to dry.
Cut it in half and glue or staple to two sides together to create a pouch. Only put glue on the outside edge of the plates halves.
Cut out 9 stripes from black construction paper. Glue down the two google eyes to one side of the pouch and arrange the stripes on the tiger face: three in between the eyes and three on each cheek.
Also cut out a nose and mouth with a short line connecting them from the black construction paper. Glue them down on the pouch.
Cut out two ears from orange construction paper and two smaller inner ears from white paper and glues them to the front of the tiger pouch.
Use a single hole punch to make a hole in the side of the pouch. Thread a piece of ribbon or string through the hole and tie it into a loop. This will be the handle for your little pouch!

Make quiet time their favourite time!
Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!
