It has been a while since we have done a stART project. This week we have been reading Elmer by David McKee as part of Baby B's Tot School, and I wanted to do a related project. Both M and B are having a great time reading about the patchwork elephant, and J mentioned it was one of his favorite books when he was their age.
First, we cut the bottom off of a milk jug. Ours was a little too square, one of the rounder ones with the handle all the way down would work best.
Miss M and Baby B started to apply a watered-down glue to the jug and then adding on squares of tissue paper in a patchwork pattern.
This was supposed to be a joint project, but Baby B got bored very early and went to play trains while Miss M finished the project. She had a great time with this project, and took her time to make it look "just right".
