The Pine Tree State Maine

One Morning in Maine

L is for Lobster
by Jeannie Brett

For this state, we made a lighthouse.  You will need a paper towel holder painted, a sturdy piece of cardboard, some rocks, black paint, blue and green paper, and some kind of small box.  Ours was the lid off of a sandwich box.

First, you want to wrap the box in green paper.

Next you want to attach the blue paper to the cardboard.

Add glue to the bottom of the box,

and attach it to the blue!

Then, attach the red paper towel holder and the bottom off a cup

Next, paint on the windows for the lighthouse and glue on the rocks.

To eat, we picked up this lovely lobster at Kroger.

Checking it out!!

In the water it goes!!

And, back out!

Trying a piece!!

Not liking it at all!!
