We took two little paper plates and painted them brown/tan. then I put a bunch of glue on them and the boys picked out rocks and put them onto the glue. I then took some green paper and cut out heads, legs, and tails. The boys had a blast. It was fun to watch them with their crafts.

This was one of the easiest projects and they enjoyed every minute of it. I loved that I didn't have to do a whole lot of direction. I think what helped was putting paper down on the table...a bit less stress about where the paint was going to end up. Notice they started with shirts...I had them stop and take them off...didn't want to get paint on their nice school shirts.
