My boys (mainly my youngest) are super technical when it comes to animals (thanks Wild Kratts...lol). So, I tend to center alot of their learning around them. We will be tackling a few LARGE projects over the next few months. So far we have decided on an ocean, dessert and rain forest habitat. All animals and environments will be made by myself and the boys.
First up: Ocean habitat! Here's how we created our Colossal Squid:
*This will be an ongoing post. I will share as we go along*
|Cut paper plate creating 10 legs (arms, tentacles, whatever....lol), leaving the center in tack (resembling a sun).|
Paint squid. Let paint dry and add sequins (for the suckers)
Paint bottom of cup and glue eye on once dry
Glue cup onto squid body
|Let dry and display flat or bend legs slightly for the real "Squid effect" : )|
