The children painted a paper plate each with brown paint, and when they were dry, they stuck on his features from the story...
"...He has terrible tusks and terrible claws
and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.
He has knobbly knees and turned out toes
and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.
His eyes are orange, his tongue is black,
he has purple prickles all over his back.."
I was so pleased with how they turned out and they have pride of place on the living room door where everyone can see them. In fact, we've turned it into a bit of a Gruffalo themed door! The children also coloured in some Gruffalo pictures and made a jumping jack.
Also this week we did some hand painting and made a lovely autumn tree, using the handprints as leaves.
