Print and color a paper lady, then fill her skirt with the animals, including a: fly, spider, bird, cat, dog, cow, and horse. This craft accompanies the rhyme called “The Old Lady and the Fly”.
- Crayons or markers
- Either a stapler, glue, or a hole punch and yarn (to put the skirt together)
- Optional – A piece of acetate or other stiff, clear plastic to make the second layer of the skirt (this way, you can see the animals through the skirt)
You can now say “The Old Lady and the Fly” rhyme while putting the animals in the old lady’s skirt. Don’t forget to write the child’s name on the craft!
