2. Antler Headband Craft
Because of their antlers, moose are indeed a unique animal.
Did you know that a male moose may grow antlers up to 30 kilos in weight?
Every year, they shed their antlers, which then grow back after a few months.
Their antlers are what distinguishes them, so we included an easy DIY antler craft for kids to do once they finish their printable moose paper bag puppet crafts.
Bring out a brown paper, marker, scissors and glue to get started with this antler headband!
Begin by cutting a two-inch-wide strip of brown paper.
It should be long enough to wrap around your child’s head.
To create the headband, use glue to join the ends of the strips.
You can use the moose puppet pattern on how to draw an antler.
Then, attach them to the sides of the headband after cutting them out.
You now have an antler headband that your kids can use for dress-up occasions at school or animal-themed parties!

This idea contains all the steps you need to do if you’re wondering how to teach the letter M to your kids.
First, let your children play with the popsicle sticks.
You can start to shape it into the letter M, and then have them imitate what you did.
Help them shape the popsicle into the letter M.
Ask them if they can recognize the letter once they have finished making their popsicle letters.
