tigers in the jungle

Tigers in the Jungle.
6 and 7 year olds.

The children looked at Rousseau's paintings of jungles. The different leaf shapes, the animals, the colours were all discussed. They began their drawings of intense jungles with marker pens. They were asked to make their jungles go to the top of the page. They coloured using wax crayons. They brushed dye over their work. The frame is made using foam board (a donation) I cut the hole in the center to save on band aides. The children embellished the frames with silver or gold paint and glitter. They added leaves if they wanted to. They made tigers using markers and wax crayon. They cut them out and put a little square of foam board behind them, so they would stand proud. They were also added to the frame.


  1. I am constantly amazed by how prolific you are with quality projects! The tigers standing outside and proud of the frame is a really unique touch, I love it!

  2. Thanks so much. I love the tigers. It's our school holiday for two weeks at the moment. I will put a few favourite lessons up from the past, like this one.

  3. These are so sweet and charming! I love Rousseau's work- thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks, I'd love to take this lesson again but wonder if the outcome would be as charming. The kids were so creative.
