The children are very new to school. I was so impressed with their ability to follow instructions and their ability to work for a prolonged time. They discussed the attributes of beetles and drew one with a black crayon. I gave them a crayon so they would work 'large'. They were then given a black marker to draw their beetle onto card which I had punched a line of holes around.
I demonstrated how they could tear tissue paper to around about the right size and glue it onto their beetle drawing.
They followed up with threading wool through the previously punched holes.
