The Armadillo of Belize is a easy craft suitable for all ages. It took her about an hour to complete this project. We gathered the materials needed using the supply list. We did NOT have any Bubble Wrap so we used a small, round sponge brush to create the armadillo armor.
- White and Brown-Toned Cardstock Paper
- Grey or Brown Paint
- Bubble Wrap or Round Sponge Brush
- Glue Stick
The next step was for Alyssa to color the background as a dry, earth scene using blue, green, and earth-toned brown colors. She wrote Belize at the top of her paper using a red crayon.
She dabbed the brown paint on the armadillo's armor using her round sponge brush. The armadillo will need a few minutes to dry before handling it.
My daughter used a glue stick to attach the armadillo to the colored background.
