Learning about the five senses can be A LOT of fun! There are just SO MANY activities that can be done!


On our lesson about the ears, we decided to create our own pair of LISTENING EARS! So instead of just pretending to “put on” their listening ears during story time, we actually got to try it for real! Once the kids get use to the idea, it becomes a fun way to recall our classroom rules!


What you will need:

  • Big Ear Print-out
  • Tape
  • Headband
  • Crayons


What you will do:

It’s actually REALLY simple! Just have the kids color the big ears and cut them out! Leave a little space on the outline so you can wrap the ears around the head band!



Step 1: Color the ears



Step 2: Cut the ear. (Leave a little space on the outline so you can wrap the ears around the head band!)




Step 3: Put on the ears and get ready to listen to today’s story!



I swear these look better on the kids! Just keeping their photos for privacy’s sake
