Abraham or Israelites traveling in Desert craft: brown chalk on a paper plate, brown wallpapers cut into valleys, cactus cutouts with balled up tissue paper, camel printouts painted with orange and brown paint, sand glued to the bottom of the plate.
Paper plates colored with brown chalk, camel print outs colored with orange & brown paint, cactus cutouts with crumpled up tissue paper balls, brown wallpaper designs cut out as hills, sand sprinkled at the bottom of the plates.
Teach your kids about different environments and have fun at the same with a Desert In A Box: Biome Diorama. The craft has very simple instructions for how to build a diorama and your little toddler or preschooler can help you build it.
paper plate stencils> pencil control- This idea is much easier for crayons or pencils. I think my girls will feel more confident about doing stenciling with the paper plates verses the small plastic stencils they have used in the past.
