I recently co-organized an outreach table for WPSU’s “Eventapalooza” in State College, PA. The event had lots of Clifford and Cat-in-the-Hat themed activities, and about 450 kids ages 5-10 participated! That’s a lot of kids in 3 hours! Some families lined up two hours before the event started!
Our group had kids make whiskers and go through an obstacle course. They also colored, learned about cat hearing, and answered cat facts. I took responsibility for creating a matching game of big cats and their habitat. What a great excuse to make paper art! I tried to keep things relatively simple, as I didn’t have too much time to devote to this project.
It was pretty successful! Kids old enough to understand the game generally did better than their parents at matching! Funny how that works. Here they are individually:
