The Caterpillar children decided to start up a new art project: Making Paper plate craft items ranging from watermelons to caterpillars, fish, aquariums, swans, self-portraits, elephants and many more ideas to come in the following weeks….They made beautiful watermelons by painting and decorating the paper plates with relevant colour (red and green) and pasting black paper as watermelon seeds. They also made lovely caterpillars by putting pom poms and google eyes onto their very real looking caterpillar creations. We will continue making and designing many more amazing creations, using the paper plates, in the coming weeks.
