Shania, JD and Mikayla all did a creative letterbox. We had to choose a book from the NZ post book awards to make a letterbox then we had to make a creative letterbox out of the book that we chose.
Shania chose Chicken feathers, JD did Roadworks and Mikayla did Ducks Stuck we had to make the letterbox as creative as we could, and of course we all did cool ones. We are in a competition to win books for our school library, class library and our selves. The dimensions could not exceed 30 cm-30 cm -50 cm. Our teacher entered us into this very cool competition we think we are only allowed to enter one of us witch is very sad because our teacher doesn't want to choose 1 out of our cool letterboxs. We all put our hard work into them but the most importent thing is that we all had fun making them.
Shania made hers by blowing up a balloon and paper mashe and then I painted the paper mashe in black paint. After that I stuck the feathers on and then I stuck the head on and feathered it. Meanwhile, I let it to dry and soon after that I stuck the balloon on the head and then I put the googly eyes on and took it to school.
Mikayla made hers by using paper to cover 2 boxes and painted them yellow and red. Then she went to the shop and bought a duck mask and stappled it on to the top of the box after that I put a NO JUNK MAIL SIGN on the bottem of the top box then printed, copied some pictures of the book and made little holes for the feathers she did the number I traced a hole for the paper.
JD made his by starting with a shoe box and cut a little bit out of another shoe box and stuck it on top to make the cab then he did the wheels by tracing around a drinking glass. Then painted the cab and the back white and painted the wheels black once the wheels had dried he painted the silver on so it made it look like a wheel. Then he stuck on the wheels and the front and back bumper then the side and back windows, the indicaters and then all the roadworks stuff.
