Remember in Preschool, how Declan had to make a diorama of his favorite animal starting with the first letter of their name (in his case, dingo)? Well, it’s baaaaack!

I am still amazed at the level of homework required of a Kindergartner, but at the same time – he is having a blast with it, so I can’t complain. This time, he had to choose his favorite type of bear and put the bear in it’s natural habitat. Which apparently is a cardboard box covered with glitter sticks.

He chose the Black Bear.

And don’t worry, that brown thing on the ground is a log. Not a poop the size of Manhattan.

    Wow, he’s in Kindergarten? He must get his artistic talents from his Mama. 🙂

    he totally rocks! I love the head to body ratio on the bear.

    i appreciate you pointing out that the log is in fact a log and not…the other kind of “log.” 😉

    Wow! Great job! I don’t remember doing anything but playing in kindergarten…

    The glitter sticks are a nice touch! And I think the log looks like a log. I like the end of it. Very good!

    Wonder how big bear poop is…

    (Very talented young man you have there.)

    I barely remember kindergarten…Although I do remember a puppet stage that I played with every day. A diorama? I wish I had homework that fun…

  11. AmpersandRanch

    This make me want to create a diorama of my own… but I doubt it would have the same charm.

    nice “log.”

  13. Catherine

  14. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Ok, kindergarten has changed a LOT since I went. We were not nearly this technical! We drew with crayons, ate paste and sang songs, took a nap, had a snack and went back home.

    Oy. I must be old.

  17. Jessica

    Can’t wait to reach this stage… What amazing artistic ability you guys have!!!!

    That is so cute.

    Somehow, in all these years, I have managed to dodge the diorama bullet . . . so far!

    Mary Beth – BLACK BEAR! Big difference! 😉

    Carrie – dioramas are actually fun!

  20. Flower Child

    I love dioramas! and I have a very fond memory of making a diorama with my friend in grade school which included…a bear. one of those clip on animals we used to have.

  21. Salty Miss Jill

    Very cute. 🙂 You will be saving this one to haul out for his prom date?

  22. Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah

    It is a pretty big bear. He could have done it.

  23. Mary Beth

    Did you not know that the brown bear’s natural habitat at birth is a shoebox? Only when his head grows to match his body can he go to the outside world. I love kid’s interpretations of animals!

  24. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    You guys crack me up.

  25. Sister Sassy

    I think the only thing I did was color when I was in kindergarden. He is way more talented than I was

    That boy does love his suns!

  27. Alpha DogMa

    Yeah, I was wondering about that ‘log.’

    My children think a bear’s natural habitat is the dumpster behind the grocery store.
