First, Lynn gives a short talk with lots of surprises from Mary Margaret's travel trunk. Lynn shares her inspiration for the story, reads from her book, MERMAID MARY MARGARET, and encourages questions about the creative writing process. Then it is time for the life-size mermaids and mermen.
HERE IS HOW WE DO IT...
- Lie on the floor and trace around your body
- Draw a tail instead of legs
- Decorate with felt pens.
- Glue torn tissue paper for a colorful body and tail-fin.
- Add more details, stick-on glitter jewels, etc.
