Paper Mache Animals in the manner of the Oaxaca's is a fun paper mache art project. Any animal can be made but the easiest to make are jungle animals like elephants and giraffes, Fish are also easy to make and can be fun to paint and add glitter and sequins. Children learn the technique by following directions and can use their imaginations to decorate using the patterns of two dimensional shapes as the Oaxacas of Mexico. Using the both two dimensional and three dimensional shapes makes this art project ideal for reinforcing those geometric math standards. The images of the art of the Oaxacas can be found on Google Images and my pinterest Animals board.
