I sure hope you saw “The Triplets of Belleville”! That is one of my all-time favorite movies, and I’ve only seen it once so far. There were some very cool frogsicles, and other frog delicacies in it. But today, boys and squirrels, I’m not talking cinema. I’m talking papier mache with kindergarten and first grade students.
We have been working on our giant frogs for several weeks. Used cantaloupe-size balloons, plastic Easter egg halves, and corrugated box cardboard to start our frogs and lily pads. We slimed them with newspaper and Ross Art Paste while discussing the hoarding of toenail clippings (papier mache projects bring out the most primitive in all kids).
Added “fun foam” legs and eyes today. Each frog gained personality plus! Then we brewed up paints in every green imaginable:
Severe weather radar
Blond swimmer chlorine hair
Out-dated cottage cheese
Hansel & Gretel forest
Leak under the car
Hope you haven’t had a green OD. If you did, just put the lime in the coconut…
