There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

Materials Needed:

Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly Song
Large lunch bag
Laminating film (Scrap pieces work well!)
Small paper plate
Construction paper
Markers or crayons
Unlined index cards
Doll Hair (Optional, may be purchased at craft stores.)

What To Do:

Teach the children the song "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly."
Color an "old lady's face" on the small paper plate. (Make sure you make a large smiley face.)
Either glue the doll hair on the paper plate or draw hair using markers or crayons.
Cut a slit in the mouth, where the lips meet.
Open the bag up and place on a flat surface.
Place a beanbag or other weighted item in to the bag to hold it steady.
Glue or tape paper-plate to the front, upper half of bag.
Cut arms and legs out of construction paper.
Tape arms to front sides of bag and legs to front bottom of bag sticking out flat, so they resemble a sitting position.
Cut out hands and shoes, then glue or tape to ends of arms and legs.
Cut a 3" x 3" square hole about 1.5" down from the head and centered (side to side) on the front of the bag.
Tape a piece of laminating film or clear plastic (Do not use contact paper.) on the inside of the bag, covering the 3" x 3" open space.
Cut index cards in half length-wise, and then again width-wise.
Glue pictures of the things the old lady swallowed onto the cut up pieces of index cards.
Place the index card pieces picture side up in front of the "Old Lady" bag.
Have children take turns reciting the song "There was an Old Lady who swallowed a fly." As they do so, they should feed the old lady the items she swallowed as they sing about them.
