I am certain this was not my original idea, but I am not sure who the idea came from! I have done this project a couple times over the last 6-8 years. All I know, someone had a great idea to create these in cut paper with sheet music backgrounds!
I borrowed a piece of sheet music from our music teacher and copied it on the copy machine 11x17. I had a tray of paper, we talked about geometric and freeform shapes. Started by cutting out three heads, bodies, legs. Then hats, instruments and arms. Once all glued down with glue stick, we added the sharpie marker details. Very simple, yet very fun!
