Art Project: Masking Tape "Mummies"
masking tape (the off-white kind)
black construction paper
die-cut machine (optional: you could use scissors and just cut out shapes instead)
Mommy? / Sendak, Maurice
*note: like many Sendak titles, this one is decidedly... odd. It's a pop-up book, so it held the kids' attention and I don't often get an excuse to read it to a group, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to get this book if you don't already own it.
Where I found inspiration: No time for flashcards's Masking Tape Mummy
What Kids Do: get a loooooooong piece of tape
a reprise of this project as I was out of town and a different librarian was teaching the class, so this week, some of the kids still wanted to continue that activity again. hooray!):
Variations to try:This could be a completely different project with washi tape and brightly colored paper (maybe around Easter time? or with a birthday book?)
