DIY Unicorn Reading Pointer
Updated: Jun 26
Put together a reading stick with your child, and then enjoy guiding them through a book afterwards! Children can begin following along while adults read a book as early as toddlerhood. Older and more independent children can use the reading stick by themselves as they are learning to read also. Make this fun unicorn shape, or if you make another shape, then leave a comment! Happy crafting and reading!
What you will need:
- Popsicle stick
- Construction paper
- Glue stick or wet glue
With a parent or siblings help if required, cut a circle out of construction paper. This will be your unicorns head. Then, cut 2 small triangles, and 1 tall triangle. These will be the unicorn’s ears and horn.
Next, glue the circle to the top of the popsicle stick.
Then, glue the triangles to the circle to make the ears and horn of the unicorn.
After, wait a few minutes for the glue to dry. Then, grab some of your favourite markers to add details to your unicorn. You can colour in the unicorn’s horn, you can add eyes, or rosy cheeks.
You could even add designs to the popsicle stick.
Once you’ve finished, grab a book. Use the Unicorn pointer to point to the words as you are reading. The unicorn’s horn will remind your eyes where to focus while you are enjoying your book. Enjoy!
