Eric Carle Letters
This was way too much fun. The day before Memorial Day and the last day of our study of Eric Carle, I had only 7 students. With such a low number of students, it is hard to do much serious work simply because it will have to be done all over again next week with those who were absent. So, we an Eric Carle art day. The project? Creating Eric Carle letters.
The images below were my inspiration:
I created a paper plate palate of acrylic paints for my students. I had them each create 4 Eric Carle-like patterns on a piece of construction paper. Here are some of the patterns they created- aren’t they gorgeous?!
We then used some letter stencils I created and mounted on card stock to create each child’s name. For more information about making the stencils, see our post, Picture Perfect Letters.
Each child traced the letters of their name on the back of their painting. The letter should be traced backwards so when it is cut out, it is facing the correct way.
Once the letters are traced and cut out, students glue them on a piece of construction paper. Letters should not be placed so every letter of their name is on the same line. Here are the final products.
