Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on the 27th January 1756. He was an Austrian composer, instrumentalist, and music teacher. He was born in Salzburg, Austria.
Mozart wrote more than 600 musical works, all of the very highest quality. His works include the operas "The Marriage of Figaro", "Don Giovanni", "Cosi fan tutte" and "The Magic Flute"; the symphonies in E-flat major, G minor, and C major ("Jupiter"); concertos for piano, violin, and various wind instruments; and numerous chamber pieces, works for the church, minuets and other dances, songs, and "Requiem".
Why not introduce Mozart to children in your setting by doing our little craft this January?
You will need:
- Kitchen roll tube (cut in half)
- Red craft paper (or you can paint it)
- White craft paper
- Black marker pen
- Craft stuffing
1. Cut the red paper (or white if you want to paint it) to ¾ height of the halved kitchen roll tube and glue it around it.
2. Draw a face on the plain part of the tube and any clothing design on the red part.
3. Add a white jabot to the front, underneath the face.
4. Put stuffing inside the top of the tube to make hair.
