Super excited to see all the projects for Letter F week starting Monday!

We had some blue and green cardboard left over from another project and decided to cut it into small pieces and make a mosaic!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Painted cardboard, paper plates, etc.
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Step 1: Paint and allow to dry, if you don't already have blue and green materials. Cut the blue and green cardboard and paper plates into various sizes of squares and rectangles.

Step 2: Cut a circle from cardboard. (We used a bowl to trace the shape.)

Step 3: Glue the pieces onto the cardboard circle.

Step 4: Once circle is covered, trim the edges around the circle.

Step 5: Add eyes cut from cardstock if you'd like...or a heart!

This would make a fun activity for a recycle themed activity, for Earth Day, or as part of a planet science unit!

While on Letter E Week with Art the Alphabet, we couldn't help but include perhaps the most popular Letter E animal - the elephant!

Start with:

  • Egg Carton
  • Cardstock
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Step 1: Cut four portions of the egg carton.

Step 2: Paint the egg carton and allow to dry.

Step 3: From cardstock, cut two ears.

Step 4: Glue the ears to each side of the egg carton portion.

Step 5: From cardstock cut out eyes.

Step 6: Glue the eyes to the top two portions of the egg carton.

Step 7: Wind a pipe cleaner into a circular spring shape.

Step 8: Glue the pipe cleaner to the egg carton.

Step 8: From cardstock, cut a bow and add polka dots if you'd like.

Step 9: Glue the bow to the elephant.

Elephants are such fascinating animals. There are so many interesting books about elephants. Check out a few of your favorites from the library and include this fun craft for a lesson about elephants!
