Sweet Peter Rabbit
Peter Rabbit was named after a pet rabbit whom Beatrix Potter had as a child, and whom she called Peter Piper. The first Peter Rabbit story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, was originally created in 1893 as a letter to Noel Moore, the five-year-old son of Potter's former governess, Annie Moore.
I felt there was no better way to celebrate the coming of Spring than for the Art Camp kids to draw the most famous spring bunny himself, Peter Rabbit!
Our very own Hardin County public library has SO many wonderful books and videos about Peter and his adventures!

Look what we made; Peter Rabbit
These students ranged in age from Kindergarten thru 8th grade.
They worked so hard and achieved wonderful results!
NOTE: I shared with the students today that another art teacher I know said that she
doubted if students this age could accomplish this project.
One little girl summed up the feeling of the whole class when she said,
"We did it Ms.Becky! We showed that silly art teacher didn't we!"
Yes, you did. You showed her.
