stART - Farmyard Pop-Up faces....pig puppet

A Story + Art = A great stART!
We have been "studying" the farm for the last two weeks...so we have read a lot of farm books...a lot...one of Ryleigh's favorites...that she got from her pop-pop when she was about Braeden's age...is Farmyard pop-up faces....its a great book...you put your face up to many different 3D masks of the animals....Ryleigh's favorite is the cow...

This week for our project, we made Pig Paper bag puppets... the girls used paper lunch bags and glued different shapes on (and googly eyes...and a curly tail)....


Ryleigh using her pink crayon...to add a little pink shimmer to the pig....
I didn't really get great pictures of her adding all the shapes...
but here she is putting on the eyes...

We poked a hole in the back of the bag and added a curled pipe cleaner for the tail...
Playing with the puppet...
