Safari, for all the kids I have ever known, means animals. It NEVER means hunting. In fact, that would be unthinkable. The worst, totally wrong in every way. But the animals, well, they are loved. Click the image for a much larger version.
With a really LARGE roll of paper, I invited a 10 year old to draw BIG, anything she wanted to draw. She picked SAFARI. I added in that we all had to think up what animals lived in the classic African safari lands. No cheating, you can not look the animals up, this is about memory for both adults and kids. When that memory is totally exhausted, then and only then, can we look stuff up. We finally did look some up, but only added 4 animals from that search effort.
"I keep thinking of the jungle and I have to think of the Africa desert instead!"
We found paper at the local THE Siuslaw News Paper in the form of the end rolls and, my, they were affordable which is fun! This roll was 24" tall and really long. So for us, SAFARI means "long journey" and "long drawing". Can you name all the animals?
