As I’m sure you can tell from my description of “Click Clack Moo: Cows That Type,” I love this book. I know your preschooler will love it too, and I know they will want to be a typing cow when the book is over. With that said we are going to make your Lil’s wish come true and turn them into a cow with our craft!
Today, our Lil’s will be making a cow hat so that they can join the typing cows.

Teacher Tip

Encourage your Lil’ to do as much of the cutting as possible.
For example, when you are cutting the construction paper into 2 inch strips, draw lines on the paper for your Lil’ and have them do the cutting. This allows them to get more practice with their scissor skills as well as take more ownership of each activity they do.
