Chloe’s Eric Carle Dots

I’ve always loved Eric Carle’s artwork. Today I decided to recycle some old paintings we had laying around the classroom to make an Eric Carle inspired dot picture.

What you need: 

  • Painted pictures/coloured paper 
  • Large hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Art paper

What to do:

Hole punch the painted pictures/coloured paper


Start pasting them onto the art paper

Trim up the edges and keep on pasting

And you’re done!

The Little Mermaid

This is a Disney classic. Growing up I wished I was a mermaid so that I could explore the ocean just like  Ariel. It is still a favourite of mine Рafter all this time Рand now it is also a favourite of my students. They enjoy the brightly coloured animations, the songs and  the music, and of course the story of young love.
