Wizard of Oz

We finished reading the Wizard of Oz and before we could watch the movie we did a craft. The craft we did was to make pages for their books and a book cover. Of course, like any of my other projects, I went a bit overboard and we only had time to get the page inserts done that day before we planned on watching the movie. LOGOandCrafts I will post about the book cover soon, but for today look at how cute their Wizard of Oz “illustrations” turned out. They will be glued onto the backs of their pages that they have been writing everyday. Here they are finishing up the last page in the book.  And then it was onto the fun part. I printed out heads and feet drawings of Dorothy, Toto, Tin Woodsman, Scarecrow and the Lion. Their craft was to make the body. Oz Tinfoil for the Tin Woodsman.  Gingham fabric leftover from making Elise’s Dorothy dress (which I am still trying to figure out the damn zipper on)  and then painted on silver glitter shoes.    I found this great faux furry trim at Joanns and bought a yard which was just enough to go around three lion manes. Felt for the Scarecrow. Finally for Toto they colored the dog (Patrick colored black, Michael colored blue and Elise’s Toto is purple and pink.) and then they glued on a little felt nose. crafts   I couldn’t be happier with how they all turned out. The big half pages are for inside the book and the single page smaller characters are for the back of the book. I can’t wait to assemble the whole book once the book cover is done.
