Learning about the 5 senses is an exciting thematic unit for young learners as they are curious about the world around them and use their senses to explore and learn. The Mr. Potato Head 5 Senses Craft is a great way to develop young learners’ word recognition and fine motor skills.

What you need:
- Brown, pink & red construction paper
