Cow Jumped Over the Moon

I saw this idea on another blog, but when I went to my handout on it I couldn't find who i got it from.  I am trying to do better with this, so I can give credit where credit is due.

This project was set for 1st grade, but I used it with 3rd grade and had equally great results.  My art show theme is WILD about ART, so we are doing all kinds of animals.  I loved this project because it referenced the Nursery Rhyme "The Cow Jumped Over the Moon" and it was just cute :)

We did a black and white weaving on 9X12 paper.  On another white paper we drew the cow's head and legs.  I used 12 X 18 purple paper for the background and we created a moon night sky with oil pastels.
I believe it took us 3 40 minute class periods, possibly 4.
