  5. Hi Leah, these chickens look amazing. If I do papier mache with 3rd grade their work never seems to be precise or smooth like these. Did you just use newspaper? What did you use for the base shape? I also love the colors.

  7. DAY 1: We used pizza circles cut in half and ball of newspaper taped to each side. Then another ball of newspaper for head. We used paper towels rolled tight (like a hot dog) 2 of them for the neck. We taped neck onto pizza circle and opened the top up like a V to tape on head. Last five minutes each kid got a little clay to split in half, make 2 cicles and then flatten. (These will be feet) I went and poked dowels in for holes) I fired so they were ready for next class.
    DAY2: Paper Mache in colored construction paper of their choice. Emphasized getting it really wet and smooth.
    DAY 3: Glitter Gloss and students crimped or curled pre-cut strips of paper for their chickens while I one by one called students to hot glue legs/beaks/eyes/feet to a piece of cardboard.
    DAY 4: More paper strips and added various colors of green shredded paper

    1. I love these? I see it says you used a pizza circle cut in half for the body. What is a pizza circle?
