Happy Birthday with Handmade Paper
Skophammer, Karen
Arts & Activities, v146 n2 p34-35 Oct 2009
Making paper in the blender is always exciting for students. When coupled with using the paper to make a mural for a birthday celebration, the excitement swells. Eric Carle is a great inspiration to children with the books he has written and illustrated, such as "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "The Very Busy Spider." In this article, the author describes how her students, inspired by Carle's books and his 80th birthday (June 25, 2009), planned out a mural to send to him in celebration of his birthday.
