The books of Eric Carle have inspired children for years. His creative use of collage and his whimsical stories are ingrained in our culture. With this activity we will explore one of Eric Carle’s books and create our own collages inspired by that experience. This lesson will teach critical thinking, pattern making, and motor skills. Plus, the end result is a beautiful colorful collage of your child’s favorite animal.
*This is an activity that uses paint. While all paint used will be washable, I will also bring a tarp or easy clean up equivalent. The child should wear painting clothes. A controlled and responsible mess is a fun mess.
As parents, it's important to make sure that activities are age appropriate and that allergies or medical conditions are communicated as you see fit.
Sometimes, a materials or other additional fee is charged. We do this to bring you the best possible activities. It's the Kid Expert's job to confirm any such fee in advance.
