Pasta Scales!

Day 3 of the week - The theme this week is Reptiles.
Project - We again sang the reptile song from Day 2. (Sung to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot" I'm a little snake, my oh my. My skin has scales; it's nice and dry. You may think I'm slimy. What? Not me! I'm a reptile, yes siree! (Substitute appropriate reptile name).

Directions: Use enlarged tagboard copies of reptiles. Cut the reptiles out. Brush glue on the reptile and press the melon shaped pasta on the glues. When the glue is dry, brush paint over the pasta to complete the reptile. (Source: The Mailbox Magazine June/July 2008)
