"Look, it's blue on top of green!"
Once your child has finished slathering his paper with paint, just fold along the crease and rub.
There we go! "It looks like a mountain!" Yes, yes, I know, not much like the Earth at all, BUT.....
...if you try, try again, you may just end up with "TWO Earths!"
AND, as an extra bonus, you may also end up with South America!
Just a few tips. Be sure to have plenty of paper on hand and lots of space for pictures to dry. South America STILL isn't completely dry after nearly 12 hours! This is truly a process-based project so don't be surprised when the children have no interest in what their finished product looks like and are simply ready to grab another sheet of paper and begin again.
Happy Earth Day!
