While studying the river horse of Africa – the hippopotamus – I selected a few fun activities and crafts for our children to complete.
We created our own hippo sun catchers to hang in the windows.
1. Gather all your materials.
2. I pre-cut the pieces we would need as well as drew the shapes of the hippo's head on the coffee filter.
3. Color the coffee filter.
5. After the coffee filters dry, glue on the eyes, mouth, ears, etc.
6. Hang your Hippopotamus Sun Catchers in the window.
