Outgoing Ostriches

Happy Friday everyone! I just came up with a fun craft that incorporates some drawing, cutting and a bit of paper collage in the background. Here it is!IMAG0223.jpg

Each child will have different ideas for the background, so this is a flexible activity that may take longer for some of them to complete. The clouds are made of colourful tissue paper circles, but you can add anything you like to make the artwork look nice!

Duration: 30 – 45 min

Materials:
– Markers
– Black Pen/Sharpie
– Construction Paper 
– Feathers
– Tissue Paper

Check out these cute giraffes, a fun activity to start off the day! All you need to give your students is a pre-cut giraffe figure with yellow and pink construction paper. Then, you can prepare smaller rectangles of different colours for your little ones to cut into small strips. Dont’ forget the spots too- Glitter or scrunched up tissue paper would look amazing : )

Fabulous Zebra

” I asked the Zebra,
Are you black with white stripes? Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me, 
Are you good with bad habits? Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times? Or are you quiet with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days? Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways? Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on and on and on he went. 

I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes….again.”
– Shel Silverstein
