Read I Cannot Draw a Horse by Charise Mericle Harper to find out how a simple “nothing shape” becomes a cat, a squirrel, a beaver, a bunny, a dog, a turtle, and a bear. But what about a horse? The cat really wants a horse. But . . . the book cannot draw a horse. Can the quick-draw book appease the horse-obsessed cat with an impressive collection of horse-y alternatives (all created from the same “nothing shape”)? Or will the cat finally get a horse?
- One piece of white paper (8.5″ x 11″)
- 1/4 sheet of grey construction paper
- Glue stick
- Draw two large and one small “nothing shape” on the grey paper (see “materials needed” photo above)
- Cut out the three shapes
- Arrange the shapes on the white paper as desired, depending on what image you’d like to make. You can use the “craft example” photo above or other images from I Cannot Draw a Horse as inspiration.
- Use the crayons to add details to your picture!
