hippos... Splash, Splash!

Trying to make some fun textures for the art show I saw the apple trays laying by the trash! I ran into the cafeteria and said " Save these they will make great water for our hippos!"
The students first painted the tray to look like waves of water, then they added some painted vines. 2nd, the students cut out paintedpaper lily pads and flowers and glued them down. The last step was for the students to create a hippo out of their pre-painted paper and add the details. The students made just the head of the hippo (to give the illusion of the hippo coming up out of water) Splash!
