I'm a huge fan of Eric Carle, the wonderful author/illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so when I was thinking of projects to do for our presentations during the Circus Ship tour, I thought we could do some collage art. The kids chose what animal they wanted to create and then we painted two big pieces of splatter art that was in keeping with the colors of our animals. After they dried, on the second day, I gave them templates to use in order to cut out all the different sections of their animals. Lastly they glued the animal parts together to create a nice collage. They all did a terrific job.
