We love any book by Eric Carle and always find them inspiring. We had set up a zoo in our classroom and after reading The Mixed Up Chameleon and watching the Youtube Video of the story we thought it would be fun to create our very own mixed up animals.
We set to work making lots of interesting paper using a variety of rollers and objects for printing.
We spent several days enjoying this process and when we were finished, we set about carefully selecting paper and print effects to use in creating our mixed up animals.
Sometimes the paper inspired the animal and it’s parts, and at other times we searched for just the right piece of paper, for that special effect in our animal creation.
But either way it was all about our thinking and the process, and that is why I haven’t posted any final animal creations but, if you look carefully in the photos you will see some animals under construction.
Happy Birthday Eric Carle and Thank You for all your stories and inspiration.
