We had another animal art project, this time making a 3-D giraffe. When we sat down to make the project, G told me that giraffes have spots and the spots are brown. I was impressed he remembered this. Then he announced he wanted to use lots of colors anyway, and that purple and blue are his favorites… so we used those plus some other colors and together we painted Mr. Giraffe.
We used non-toxic acrylic paints and painted onto cardboard shapes.
Mr. Giraffe likes the Fairy Garden. (Sadly, the neighborhood squirrels do, too, and eat whatever they want, plus demolish the houses we built.)
