We love David Shannon. My daughter's favorite is Alice The Fairy, but for our project this month we chose A Bad Case of Stripes. I was inspired by the activity at There's a Dragon in My Art Room, but I adapted it for my preschooler.
To make our striped faces, we started with a piece of clear contact paper and used a permanent marker to draw a face. We used our Pick and Draw game*, but you could have kids draw a self portrait, Camilla's face, or any face they can think of.
When we finished drawing our faces, we turned the contact paper over and peeled off the back. We applied strips of colorful paper to the sticky side.
Once the back was covered in stripes, we flipped our papers back over and cut around the face.
*I am not affilited with Pick and Draw. I just really like it.
