I found this lesson on the ole reliable PINTEREST! With a few minor changes and improvements we made some beautiful Egyptian Cats.
We started with a paper grocery bag (I had a ton donated at one school, and parents recycle them at another). The paper bags were thick and the perfect color. We drew a frame and then our cat step-by-step in the center of the paper.
By breaking down the cat into easy shapes, the students did a fantastic job drawing them.
We added collars and Egyptian eye makeup for finishing touches.
The students colored with construction paper crayons and regular crayons and then... the BEST part...added gold paint!
These cats obviously lived very good NINE lives!
