- Gather your materials. You will need 3 pieces of construction paper , some scrap black paper, 2 googley eyes, brown paint, a pencil, scissors, glue and some crayons.
- Have your child draw the background with crayons. My son drew clouds , the sun and “og” (fog).
- While they do that, draw antlers on the first piece of paper.
- Draw the outline of the moose head on the other piece of paper. I drew an uneven keyhole shape.
- Have your child paint the head with the brown paint. Using a big brush will help get all the head painted with little guys, our dauber didn’t do such a great job, so we took turns.
- Paint the antlers. Let dry.
- Cut out the antlers and head.
- Glue the antlers to the scenery.
- Glue the head on top of the antlers.
- While your child is gluing , cut out 2 ovals from the black paper for the moose’s nostrils.
- Glue the nostrils on.
- Add the glue for the eyes.
- Add the googly eyes. Let dry.
“Moosetache” by Margie Palatini is a absurd book about a moose with an out of control mustache! Kids love this book, they laugh at the poor moose who is quite anxious about his unusual facial hair. The book has a valuable message about accepting yourself and the quirks that make you you.
