1)Use one 12 x 18" black sheet to draw one large animal (rabbits, elephants, turtles, pigs, etc.) that nearly fills paper.
2)Choose several 3 x 6" colors for your animal's body parts.
3)Take one 3 x 6" color and cut it into 1/2" wide strips.
4)Next, cut a 1/2" strip into smaller squares, approximately 1/2" in size. Now you have a small pile of tiny squares that are about 1/2" x 1/2".
5)Use these small squares to fill in a part of animal's body. (Spread a small amount of glue where you want squares to go. Place squares carefully on glue, close together.)
6)When one part of body is filled, choose another part of body to fill. (If you have squares left, use those squares to fill another part of body that you want to be that same color.)
7)When you're ready, choose another 3 x 6" color and cut it into 1/2" x 1/2" squares. Use these to fill next part of body that you chose.
8)Repeat this process until all parts of animal's body are filled.
9)Put away to dry.
