I hope the teacher doesn't think I made this.

My daughter has to make an insect for a school project. They could pick any insect they wanted and use any materials they wanted. My daughter choose to do a rhinoceros beetle. So I figured foil and paper mâché was our best bet. She did most of the shaping of the foil then I stuck the parts together with toothpicks and put wire legs through the body, and helped her get the paper mâché on tomorrow we will do another layer and hopefully she can paint it by Monday.
Anyhow it's pretty good I hope her teacher doesn't think I did most of the work.

    From your description, it sounds like you did do a lot of the work. I'll probably be the same way. It looks awesome.

    I basically did the parts she might have hurt herself doing. But she is 6 so I know some parent help is expected.
