China! ~The Dragon!~


 A simple project with outstanding results!

China! ~Canvas lantern decorations~

 We decided to make some lanterns for our China theme involving many textures.

The first stage was decorating the canvas - we chose the night sky and added sequins for stars.

The lanterns themselves were made from origami paper cut into shapes ranging from rectangles to pants (!).

We made our own puffy paint using flour and salt and food colouring to add a more 3D effect to our work.

They all looked amazing mounted onto the wall together!

Jingle sticks!

Out in the forest we like to sing songs. It's so much more fun with our own music!

We made great jingle sticks. The class found their own twigs and on a rainy day, we decorated them with yarn and bells, ready to use out in the forest.
