This is a really simple land, air, water variation! A former co-worker of mine had something like this years ago with scrapbook paper but I think it was with pictures. I've discovered over the years that works with objects in them (vs. pictures) are so inviting to the the children and are in constant use. So once again, I went through all my objects and found 6 for each. I used all animals but I think I might expand it with other items such as buildings and vehicles.
I was really excited about finding this paper. I've been keeping my eyes out for it for a few years and wanted paper with realistic graphics! Ben Franklin was the place to go as I found all 3 under the Northwest section!
It was 12 x 12 but I cut it to 8 1/2 x 11 so it'd fit in a tray on the shelf.
