The next week, I had them guess what these could become and they liked the idea of donuts. We drew on the sprinkles with colored markers, cut them out--cut out a big bite--glued it onto a background and glued on the crumbs. Another possibility for this lesson would be to make some fluffy clouds with white chalk pastels on the background--to have that large donut in the sky effect!
After sewing the tops and doing a very simple end off, they scribbled on the top page with colored markers--folded and cut shapes into the color paper--putting a piece of newspaper under the top page, they painted the wheat paste over the scribbles to smear the marker and to adhere the cut out paper--Then the sparkles! Please excuse the details, I'm listing all these steps of prep and the making of, for my own benefit. I can then easily look this up if I were to do this lesson again sometime.
