This is a children's book based on a folk tale, "The blind Man and the Elephant". It has beautiful illustrations. All the animals have these fun vibrant colors and patterns. I saw a perfect opportunity to use some of the patterns books that I have had for years. So that is what we did. The kids first picked out a pattern color sheet. I told them to color however they wanted, but they needed to have a color palette of at least 5. Then they picked out one of the following characters from the book; turtle, octopus, bat, bird, goat, or elephant. The turtle and the bat were the most popular of the animals to make. After they colored the sheet, they cut out the animal. Parts of the animals were also made out of construction paper. Then oil pastels were used to finish the animals before gluing down to the black background paper.
