Se7en Million Colorful Camoflauged Chamelions…

Can I just say we love and adore chameleons… which are a very rare find…

And Crayola crayons, which are equally rare over here… I have been saving up a box of 48 for the longest time and brought them out yesterday for a project…

And our all time favorite book, that we all know off by heart, but it is a very rare, out of print find. We read ours from the library again and again and again, if you ever find a copy then just buy it… It really is such a great book…

We started an art frenzy of note… Everybody had their own version of a chameleon.

And a million bright chameleons were ready for a trip into the sunshine…

But first we used some soft pastels to give them some camouflage…

Because everyone knows chameleons are the best at camouflage…

And finally we made the trip outdoors where our chameleons were hiding… or not!!!

Clearly chameleons come in all shapes and sizes…

If there is a book on chameleons we have read it, without fail… These are our favorites and we are just loving the Blue Chameleon!!!





Hope you have fun disguising your chameleons!!!

  1. We love these sweet little creatures too! Though we have never been blessed with the chance to meet one in person.

    Crayola, well that is another story. They’re a dime a dozen here. Perhaps we should send a box your way. That would be fun. 🙂

    Lovely book recommendations; thanks for the info!

  2. I love chameleons too. I also see that you sneaked in one of you rown there?? Well done. Have a fab day

  3. Hay Karen M!!! Happy Friday!!! We all ten of us love this book and know it off by heart it is just too good to be true!!! Hope you guys have a fun weekend!!!

  4. Hi April O., We occasionally find them and you get huge reptilian things like them at the local snake park… I can handle the little ones and the soft little feet and curious, hesitant little creeping walk – too cute for words!!! And we get crayons here just not crayola and certainly not boxes of 48, actually a blog friend sent us those from the states and I have been saving them for a rainy day … boy did we have a rainy day!!! Hope you and that cute gal of yours have a fun weekend!!!

  5. Wow, I hadn’t realised there were so many books about chameleons. We don’t see the real variety in England.
    For older children but I remember reading about them in on of Gerald Durrell’s books, I think, “My family and other animals.”

  6. Hi Sara, Astonishing really – There are tons of chameleon books, we always seem to have one out but these are the ones that stand right out in my mind – having read them more than once or ten times!!! Oh and My Family and Other Animals is one of my older kids all time favorite books!!! Hope you have a fun weekend!!!

  7. Oh, I love this, and all those wonderful books!! I don’t think I have ever seen a chameleon. How is that possible? I love all your kids’ art. My girl would love to do that—another idea to try!

    My girl is right now making a book about cats hidden in a castle. She’d love to see all these sneaky, hiding creatures! Thank you for this 🙂

  8. Hi Helena!!! I saw your daughter’s book the other day, how exciting!!! I loved reading about your homeschool day!!! So glad you liked our chameleons… they are indeed a rare treasure!!! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!!

  10. They did such a great job! I LOVE their work. I’ve never seen that book- it looks adorable. My daughters favorite book when she was a toddler was actually a non-fiction book titled Chameleon, Chameleon. It’s written by Joy Cowley. Your kiddos might enjoy it!
