Engage children's imagination with our fantastic additions to the 'Big Art' range.
These giant sculptures are handmade from strong papier mache. The size and scale of each figure sparks awe and wonder in young children and engaging their imagination and creativity whilst they work collaboratively decorating them creating a magical figure the whole school can be proud of and treasure year after year.
Make them as wacky or realistic as you wish using a combination of stunning patterned papers and acrylic paint. Varnish (using the special water based varnish supplied in the teaching packs) to seal them and they can be used in the outdoor classroom as an amazing outdoor sculpture, inspiration for photography, learning about the environment of wild animals, eco issues etc.
Truly cross curricular these Wild and Wonderful Figures can also be used in role play, as inspiration for writing, story telling or keep by reception - what a welcome for visitors that would be!
Wild and Wonderful Sculptures include: Elephant size: H100 x D40 x L100cm, Giraffe size: H160 x L80 x W35cm and Giant Wishing Tree size: H160 x W109cm.
All figures in this giant papier mache range can be decorated and enjoyed in school year after year, to change the surface design simply paint over the surface with Gesso or white acrylic paint and re-decorate. Easy. (plus as the layers build up your figure becomes more and more solid!)
(NB. Each figure supplied initially in large pieces therefore some assembly needed to create a solid sculpture before they are ready to decorate).
