Tie the pouch/pocket around each child’s waist, as you would an apron.
Kangaroo Day arrives! The morning began with having the students make their own kangaroo pouches. Since my students are very young, 3 and 4 years old, I pre-cut the pouches at home and glued them together, using Elmer’s glue.
The top piece is cut just a bit shorter than the back. As you see in the picture, I used a hole punch to punch 6 holes across the back of the pouch. The students laced a long string of yarn through it (also pre-cut.)
Last year’s craft and lesson was so cute. This year, I added the feature of making our kids the joeys. I printed a small photo of each child that they could glue onto the face of the joey after they colored and cut it out, adding a nice personal touch.
Others will, too.
