Green Eggs and Ham Crafts
Green Eggs and Ham Art from Play Teach Repeat. Wine cork painting turns these organic shapes into green eggs. What a great idea!
Paper Plate Craft from Glue to My Crafts – A fun activity to go with this famous book.
Process Art Green Eggs craft (source) is a fun way to integrate process art into a great craft! Start by marble painting. Put a piece of construction paper in a box with a few squirts of green paint. Put a handful of marbles or a couple of golf balls in the box and have each child move the box back and forth to move the marbles through the paint. If you have a big box, two children could work together by standing on each side of the box and coordinating their movements. Once the paint is dry, cut organic circular shapes and paste a green circle in the middle.
