Last week the Doodlebugs made some adorbale baby turtles using Air Dry Clay. So naturally, this week our task is to make a home for our little turtles to live!
So we set to work creating a habitat diorama. These were so much fun to make and the children really got into the process. Of course they also painted their little turtles... today was a busy day!
We used old shoe boxes (my friends all now think I moonlight as a trash collector) and painted them out. I had cut outs of various types of fish , coral and other sea creatures that the children coloured in last week and we stuck them into the diaorama. For the final touch I spread some glue on the base and they sprinkled sand to represent the sea bed.
I realize I didn't get very many close-ups of their turtles... I hope you can see them in there.
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
