Product Description
Make studying the 5 senses super-fun by making a fruity-faced friend. To help put a smile on your face as well, I'm knocking a dollar off for a limited time.

Designing one is really quite addicting, so be prepared when your kiddos ask to make another one!

Besides apples, there are 15 black & white fruit head options, plus a huge assortment of fruit-themed facial features to depict the 5 senses.

Completed projects look adorable suspended from the ceiling, or used as a border for the top of a hallway wall. There are 9 posters for your display.

Children look over the options, then snip one from the pattern page.
This way, all you have to do is run off the templates, while children get practice cutting, coloring and gluing together a 5-senses “fruity-faced friend”.

I’ve included “gloved hands” (like Mickey Mouse) for the “touch/feel” sense, but children could also trace one of their hands on a sheet of folded paper, then cut once to make two hands, which they glue (thumbs up) to the sides of their fruit head.

To reinforce the 5 senses, there’s a set of labels students cut and glue to their fruity face as well; or you can simply have them label each sense with a marker.

Besides the craftivity, there are templates for a “Design A Fruity-Faced Friend” independent center.

Choose from 20, colorful fruit head posters, along with 5 sheets of facial feature-fruit options, and colorful hands.

Children arrange the various fruits ’til they come up with a “fruity-faced friend” that they really like. (This activity is also quite addicting, as it’s so much fun mixing & matching to create hilarious fruity little friends!)

Allow students to take a photo of their completed creation, then make small thumbnails of each child’s fruity friend and put them in a class-made, photo album.

I’ve provided a cover and album page for this. Students color the picture, write their name in the blank, as well as the name of their “fruity friend”.

Laminate the pages, collate & put in your center. Keep your collection of photo albums (as you collect them each year) in a basket in this center to give students ideas.

For another center activity, there’s a set of “label me” fruity-faced friend posters.

Children place the word labels for the five senses, on the posters.

For further reinforcement, I’ve included 5 worksheets.
Do a “cut & glue” version first, then later, to whole-group assess, do one of the “fill-in-the-blank” worksheets.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy learning about the 5 senses with a fruity-faced friend.
