Papier-mâché': Animal (Day 2)

Today is the day that we will finish decorating our animal. They can pick their favorite color. I let them mix their own color, too. After the first color dries, we added the second color for extra, like adding spots or strips. The last step is to add the eye.

To add more knowledge to this project, I found from the WIKI about paper mache is,
Papier-mâché (French for 'chewed-up paper', due to its appearance), commonly miscalled paper-mâché, is a construction material that consists of pieces of paper, sometimes reinforced with textiles, stuck together using a wet paste (e.g., gluestarch, or wallpaper adhesive). The crafted object becomes solid when the paste dries.[1]
