To create the shape of the Sphinx, suggest students construct a base (armature) using small boxes and balls of recycled newspaper. Individual pieces can be taped in place. Provide Crayola Model Magic to each group for covering the exterior of the armature. A face, headdress, beard, and other details can be added as determined by group members. Craft sticks can be used to make fine lines. A comb or similar tool can be used to texturize the structure. Air-dry the sphinx projects overnight.
