Young children will work on social skills in a fun way with this super cute sharing craft. Looking for sharing activities for kids? This activity is great for younger children and the best way to help kids role play and learn how to share items. This printable is perfect for the month of November.
I share many SEL (social skills and social and emotional learning activities on this blog).
If your kids are having a hard time understanding the concept of sharing, this fun activity is a great way to encourage social interactions, talk about SEL (social emotional learning) and social skills.
You can even use paper plates instead of the actual printable template given.
Sharing is an essential social skill
Teaching kids the concept of sharing with fun games like board games, organic activities in everyday life are all great ideas! Crafts can also make a great way to encourage sharing.
Young kids would love to cut and paste their turkey pieces onto the plates.
Anger social story templates and FREE printables.
Another fun idea is to use a sharing song during circle time to begin the activity and begin the task to help them understand the concept.
Family members and older siblings can get in on the action when the kids come home with the crafts already made!
You will only need a few items for this craft since it doesn’t require much putting together. All the templates are included in the download.
- construction paper (or black cardboard to mount the craft on)
- templates below
- coloring crayons (if you want to use them without color)
Different ways to teach sharing
Before you begin the task, explain what the meaning of sharing is. Start with a simple game.
The idea of the game is to have each child share something they have, it might be a crayon, a pencil anything they have they can share and get it back.
Once they understand what the concept of sharing is, you can begin this craft.
Explain that they will each get a plate, then they will need to divide the turkey pieces among themselves and one other friend. The idea is that they will give 3 turkey pieces to themselves and the same amount to their friend.
They will paste these turkey pieces onto their plate.
You could also add the letters in their name on the broccoli pieces to add to the craft. Super cute and fun!
You could also use a paper plate for this activity, a super cute idea! This is a great tool to begin discussing what it means to be sharing their items and why it’s important.
Another way you could also put it, have them work in a small group or with the next person to make their shared craft!
