on a journey through the grasslands of Africa to meet elephants, giraffes,
zebras and many other creatures. The hippo is hidden on every page making it a fun game for your toddler to try to find him, and at the end of the book the hippo appears with a loud splash.
Fold one of the paper plates in half (fold so the top of the plate is in the inside). This will be the hippo mouth. Unfold that plate and paint the bottom of each plates gray. As we started painting I realized we really only needed the bottom half of the mouth paper plate painted so that’s all I painted. My daughter painted all of her plates though.
My daughter chose to make a purple hippo just like in the Hiccupotamus story.
Once the paint is completely dry, turn the mouth paper plate over and paint it pink. Let it dry completely before moving on.
Cut ears out of gray paper and glue them onto the back of the face. Also glue large wiggly eyes onto the hippo face.
He turned out so cute!!
