Students started with the basic shapes for their cat -- a large oval with triangle ears. The arms and a tail were options, too.
Kids used a brush to paint these main shapes, but for all those skinny little hairs, they switched to homemade paper "combs."
The details of eyes, nose, mouth and pink for the ears and paws were done with cut paper and glue, so everyone got a little practice with those basic skills.
For most classes we let our Splats dry and added final touches on a second day.
When the paint was dry, a little pink crayon on the tummies finished off our Splats.
I loved the variety of personalities represented. Somebody thought to add a belly button to this one:
Thank you, Rob Scotton, for the delightful stories. And thanks to the photo on Pinterest that directed me to this blog that had the idea. Maybe we'll try Splat's pet mouse Seymour, next!!
