Our favourite reading figures
What kind of books do the kids like reading? Who are they favourite characters?
The kids have to draw the cover of their favourite book on a half A4 piece of paper, folded into two. Then, with the help of another A4 sheet they can easily make this reading figure.
You will need 2 sheets of paper – a white one (for the book), and a coloured one (for the figure). Cut three long bands from the colpoured sheet. Use two for – legs, and one for hands.
Bend the upper part of the remaining sheet, and make a hair dress with the help of scissors. Glue to white circles for glasses. Draw eyes and mouth with a black marker.
Glue the hands and the legs.
Now you can place and glue the book in the hands of the figure.
