Whales School Project -Collage and Neverending card


 Origami whales
My daughter has the theme "Whales" in school. So we have been doing a lot of " whale" related activities.She learnt on her own how to draw a whale and then wanted to make a 3D collage to take to school.
Her collage is fairly simple as conquering the origami whale itself was quite a challenge for my kiddo!
She made a mama whale with a pink flower on her head [Do you know any little girl whose favorite color is not pink?!!]

And of course my daughter wanted the baby whale to be a "girl" too!

We cut "sand" out of yellow moonstone paper and my daughter cut out the "blue waves" from corrugated paper.The coconuts are thermocol balls.

In her school they go in-depth on their theme topic and so I had to research quite a bit about whales too to help my kiddo to grasp the "whale" theme.
There were so many tit bits of information and we stuck the pictures in a "Never ending Card" 
This is one type of card which you have to make to realize the charm!! Pictures just dont do justice to it-- you have to get it in your hand and play with it-- you just cant stop!!
The pictures are in the sequence of what happens when each fold of the card is opened.

My daughter loves to show off our unusual school projects charts and this year her class teacher is so appreciative of the extra efforts we put in.

  11. Every girl needs a little pink in their life, both whale and human. Your project is adorable, as usual. Love that moonstone paper...have never seen it before but it really looks like sand. That coconut tree is so cute, especially the way the fronds billow from the paper. I can feel the breeze. Amazing job on your project. I bet the teacher keeps assigning these just to see what you will do next!

  20. Wonderful. I tried making a Never Ending Card and flopped so instead I made a Gate Fold Card instead. Have you or your daughter seen a live whale? They are bee-utiful! Enjoyed when I took a cruise to Alaska and went on several whale watching excursions and a highlight of our trip to Maui, Hawaii was a helicopter ride from Maui to Molokai I saw & photographed a mother whale & baby whale.

  22. This is a wonderful way to express what she has learned. You always come up with a creative way to do her reports.

    I also want to thank you for all of your sweet comments you have left on my blog, even though I have done nothing new this month.

    Do you celebrate this time of the year anything like our Thanksgiving? If you do or if you don't, I still want to say happy thanks for all of your blessings, and all the blessings you give others.

    Hugs, Pam at http://craftycards4u2.blogspot.com/
