Preschool children bursting with energy and creative imagination, delight in bringing their favourite characters from books and films to life through craft activities. Harness that natural desire to experiment and learn through play by selecting crafts that include those characters. Winnie the Pooh has lots of friends to keep a preschool child entertained and by mixing and matching the characters the same basic activity can be repeated many times and still seem fresh.

Baking

Making cookies and cakes at home is a practical introduction to cooking skills for preschoolers, and they enjoy it even more when they're baking their favourite Pooh characters. Cookie Pooh heads baked on a stick make entertaining treats, and small children will enjoy cutting out the pastry shapes or helping to roll the dough. Press in currants for eyes, or leave the decoration until the baked cookies are cool, then let children mould eyes and a mouth out of fondant icing.

Colouring

Winnie, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet star in their own colouring pages. Preschool kids learn fine motor control, developing the small muscles in their fingers and hands, when colouring so it's a craft activity that's both absorbing and practical. Provide crayons and pencils or paints and let little ones bring Winnie and his friends to life. Display the finished pictures as they are, or take the activity a step further by cutting the characters out and sticking them on a larger paper to create murals.

Sewing

Encourage preschool children to further develop hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills with Winnie the Pooh themed lacing activities. A quick way to make Pooh lacing cards is to scan a picture of Winnie and his friends and then laminate it. Punch holes around the outline of the image and provide yellow or black lacing cords or shoe laces for the child to thread through the holes. Make the lacing card extra personal by laminating one of the child's own coloured pictures.

Snow Globes

Use plastic Winnie the Pooh figures and empty food jars to make homemade snow globes. You'll need waterproof glue, such as florist clay, and some coloured glitter. Glue a Winnie the Pooh figurine to the inside of the jar lid, building up the florist clay so the figure is clearly visible when the lid is screwed onto the jar. Fill the jar with cold water leaving a half-inch gap at the top, then add a sprinkling of glitter and seal the jar closed with a waterproof glue.
