Life-Size People

By Spencer G. and Eric M. from 4-N

This project for the 4th Grade of Purchase School is a very cool and fun project for all of us. First we planned our person and traced one of our bodies. Then we got to work on painting our person which was really fun! We even got to scratch into wet paint with the end of our paint brush, called sgraffito. Once the paint dried we cut it out. Then we stuffed it and stapled it and then did our final touches to the people. We used a lot of materials such as paint, oil pastels, markers, paper, stuffing, fabric, yarn, staplers and duck tape. Don’t you wish you could do this project at home?



  1. I LOVE this project! I think the figures are awesome, and now I know how you do it after reading your very clear description.
