Tashi and the Ghosts - our pastel resist pictures

We have been enjoying THE BIG BIG BIG BOOK OF TASHI by Anna & Barbara Fienberg & Kim Gamble each day over the last week or so.
These are some pictures we made about "Tashi and the Ghosts" and "Tashi and the White Tigers".
We made them using pastel and dye.
We have put instructions for making this kind of picture at the end of this post. We hope some people will try to follow our instructions.

If you click on the comic strip, it will be big enough to read.

Measuring Teddies

We have been having some fun with our teddies in the last few weeks.
We measured them using beads in balance scales and also using bead strings.
Each teddy had a card with its measurements on, but we didn't know which teddy went with each card. So then we had to guess and check our measurements to find the mystery teddy.
Here is some of the work we did.
The app we used was Comic Strip.
