image Eric Carle inspired animals

Eric Carle’s books are some of my favourite books for kids. He creates textures on paper in different ways, and cuts these up to create the illustrations for his stories. I read out some of his stories to the kids  and showed them his illustrations . Then I gave each of my kids a sheet of paper and paint, and showed them how to create textures on it in different ways. The kids then shared the papers, cut them up and collaged them to create their animal pictures.
