Anytime that I have an excuse to break out the watercolors I’m all over it! Today I’m sharing a fun chameleon craft project we did to go along with the story, The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle.

We used this book as part of our color book study. I wanted to have them be able to make a craft to display in the classroom and to share what everyone’s favorite color is.
Supplies you’ll need
I piece of construction paper per student
the free printable chameleon craft page – you can download it at the bottom of the post
water cup with water
pencil or crayon
To make the chameleon craft, first print out the template. Have your students use watercolors to paint the chameleon. If watercolors are not an option for you, using crayons will also work and turn out just as pretty. Let the page dry.
After the page is dry, have your students cut out the chameleon and sentence strip.
Use a glue stick to attach the chameleon onto the construction paper. Next, glue the sentence strip onto the construction paper as well. Have the students use a pencil crayon to write in what their favorite color is on the line.
They look adorable and so colorful hanging up in the classroom!
