Hippo Making Fun!

What a great day...........there is nothing more fun then spending the day in a classroom full of 6 year olds. Ok so there are probably a lot of things that are more fun.lol but today we did a great craft and well it is cute and educational at the same time. With a paper plate, construction paper, glue, crayons and a couple marshmallows you to can have a hippo of your own :O) 
We started by folding a paper plate in half. The outside should be grey and the inside should be pink. After cutting out the eyes, nose, and ears we glued them on and next were the teeth. I forgot we also use brown temper paint, although I'm not sure how I forgot that part.lol To make these an educational school craft we told about the hippo. The sentence says Because it is hot, hippos play in mud. The kids all had so much fun :O)
