I prepared a template of a koala
Children sprayed shaving cream into a shallow tray and spread the cream out.
The kids added blobs of marbling ink ( food Coloring works well)
Then they spread the ink around to make a design.
They pressed the koala down on their pattern. they lifted it off and then they washed off the excess soap leaving a pattern.
The kids made a tree out of brown paper no added that to a green background. They made gum leaves from crepe paper and also added some paperbark to the tree ( with PVA glue)
The koala was added to the tree. One kid had his crawling along the ground.
