Make Believe Animal Art Project

On our last trip to the library, this book made its way into our pile.


It's a cute story about a kid who asks for a pet, but his parents won't let him get one (sounds vaguely familiar), until he asks for a "Snaggle Grollop".  His parents agree that he can have a Snaggle Grollop since it's a make believe animal.  The next day, much to his parents surprise, the boy brings his animal home.


After we read the story, I decided to have the kids draw pictures of their own make believe animals and name them.



They enjoyed creating a new creature and coming up with a silly name.




It ended up being a fun, easy little activity.

Very cute! I remember years ago when my two oldest made their own monsters with our craft supplies on construction paper, and Bella named hers "mommy". Nice. :-)

What a great activity! A fun way to build on it another day would be to have the children write a story about their monster or fill in a fact sheet.
For example:
My monster's name is _______.
He likes to _______.
He lives in _______.
He eats ______.
Etc.
