On my Pinterest board I found this amazing Igloo project from Bookhoucrafts. I loved that it was a relatively easy, participative project. I loved the simplicity and high visual impact. It shows you step by step how they did theirs. We did ours (shown here) somewhat differently:
Day One of our project I made some papermache goo. I found the recipy somewhere on Pinterest but the link to it is no longer available, so I'll share it here:
We glued the entrance to the dome - a little tricky. First taped it together on the inside, then added glue over the outside. Then we glued the complete igloo to the board. Added a penquin we had on hand and a Leggo Scientist. The wow factor was the little lights (we used a battery powered headlamp and a tiny cubboard light- found at Crazy store locally).
Reuben took it to school the following day and did an oral on the process. Switching on the lights at the end, got a "wooahw" from the whole class. He was also one of two that was selected from the class to exhibit at the next Open day at school. A less daunting project for new open day parents I hope?
