We revisited the topic on 'giraffe' last month, during which we did some art and crafts related to the animal.
The 4yo painted this giraffe on his own. The 2yo was trying to paint an elephant. His idea entirely to paint a yellow elephant, though I couldn't spot it anywhere on his sea of yellow and orange strips.
Then we made a cardboard giraffe out of boxes that I had saved. It was one of the ideas I have for our Recycling Craft Project.
The kids held up their finished product with pride. Just like a trophy! ^.^
But they couldn't stop asking me why the animal won't stand. Short of better materials, we made the legs out of paper rolls which just aren't strong enough to support. Nevertheless, I am so proud and pleased with the end result.
