Abstract Animals

Betty Bose Uncategorized 0

It’s always interesting to see things in a different light. Our contest winner, Elysia from Dartmouth, Massachusetts took a look at an elephant and this is what she saw. Why not try making some Abstract Animals and see what you make? Elysia loves drawing, coloring, making origami animals, and finger knitting. Her other hobbies include reading (2 hours a day!), piano and hockey.

Step 4. Make sure you write your name in one of the shapes. You can also include the date.
