Inspired by the geometric shapes and the expressive eyes Chris Haughton used in the illustrations of George, this project uses a minimum of materials but has maximum appeal. Set out the supplies and invite your young reader to create a unique version of George.
What You Will Need
- Paper towel tube
- Purple paint
- Black paint
- Googly eyes
- Construction paper for ears
How To Do It
- Let your young readers artistic vision take the lead. We painted the paper towel tube then attached the googly eyes and ears cut from construction paper.
Why We Like It
- It uses googly eyes! Yes we know they are only small bits of plastic but googly eyes are pure magic!
- It's a dog! Do you like dogs as much as we do? Check out our crafts and recipes to go with A Ball for Daisy, McDuff and the Baby, and The Stray Dog.
