The First Diorama

Do you know how long it has been since I did a diorama for school? It's been forever, but I remember what it looked like and how proud I was when it was complete. My first born had his first school project, and it was not smooth sailing.

He had to pick a fairy tale for the diorama, and he choose The Ugly Duckling. Javen painted the background scene and the pond for the ducklings. There was just one problem. He didn't want to cut the pond to fit inside the box because the tops of the lily pads would be cut off. After a discussion about responsibility, the lilies were chopped.  

I had to look up the elements of a diorama. So, if you  your child has a diorama due soon check out these tips.

* It is supposed to look like a miniature stage.
* It contains a scene of the story
* It is 3D
* Use miniatures to make the proportions look right

Happy Homework,
