The circus is coming! The circus is coming! Make your own 3-D circus using recyclables: a shoebox and foam produce tray.
Create your own 3-D Circus in a box! Cover your art area with newspaper. Use Crayola® Washable Kid's Paints and Paint Brushes to decorate the outside and inside of a shoe box. Choose colors to make it look like a big-top circus tent. You may want to let areas of the box dry before you change paint colors. Cover the box with circus colors. Let the paint dry.
Add circus details to your box with Crayola Washable Markers.
On recycled file folders, draw circus performers and animals using Crayola Colored Pencils, Crayons, and Markers. Cut out the circus acts.
Use Crayola Scissors to cut small shapes (that fit on the back of your performers) from recycled foam produce trays.
To create a 3-D effect, use Crayola School Glue to glue foam pieces to the back of each character. To make some characters appear closer than others, stack and glue several pieces of foam together. For example, you may want to stack 3 pieces of foam for an elephant and 5 pieces for an acrobat. Let the glue dry.
Glue each character to the inside of the box. Let the glue dry, then enjoy your 3-D Circus!
