Into the Jungle – Five Ways to Make Brilliant Paper Animals

Into the Jungle...

Henri Rousseau Jungle

Here we are on day 4 already! Thank you to those who have been sending me pictures, or sharing on the Facebook group  its been so lovely to see and read about how you are finding the activities! 

Today we are leaving Australia behind to go on an adventure into the jungle… and the rainforest! All sorts of amazing animals live in these lush and vibrant eco systems – what is your favourite? I love the amazing birds – I think they are so colourful and beautiful and some of them have the most amazing feathers!

Here’s a brief overview of what we have planned today. The warm up activities are some snake and lizard paper crafts and you can see them below. Our artist today is Henri Rousseau and is beautiful jungle paintings, and you can find the info and activities for that here. 

I have a quick drawing workshop on elephants and winding snakes for you, and a sweet short film for you to watch. After lunch we are combining our outside activity with our project to make rainforest rain stick instruments, before settling down with some light reading and our journal prompts. Have a great day, and read on for your warm up.
