This is my version of the Rainforest shoebox diorama that we did with my daughter Hannah in first grade. Now she is a happy homeschooler. I found a great video in YouTube that inspired me to do this with confidence!. Here are the photos of the steps and materials that I used to make it. I didn't find a better way to upload the photos but if you know how to do it without using pinthemall, please let me know by leaving a comment!
These are some of the prettiest shadow boxes I have ever seen. I have loved this form of art since I was small, felt it had enormous potential for real magic, but have so rarely seen something truly special.
