Circus Shapes

Today’s Activities

Circus Stencils

Use circus stencils (make some from cardboard if you don’t have any). Make shapes of clowns, horses, ringmasters, balloons, etc. Have your learner use the stencils to make pictures that they can tell you a story about!

Paper Plate Emotion clown masks

Cut 2 paper plates in half to create 4 masks. Focus on the emotions happy, mad, sad, and silly. Have your learner use shapes and colors to create the emotions to look like a clown’s face. (For example, use a red circle for a clown nose, upside down semi-circle for a sad face, etc). Glue the masks onto popsicle sticks to hold up and practice identifying emotions. Remember to be creative and have fun!
