Bruh Tiger and The Big Wind Mobiles

Brer Rabbit Day at Zion Gallery

Committee member: Fedrecia H.

Project Description: Zion Gallery holds arts and craft workshops for local kids for special occasions. For Brer Rabbit Day, they held a workshop where kids listened to the story Bruh Tiger and the Big Wind, then made these mobiles depicting the story.

Try it at home:

We read our story from Talk that Talk: An Anthology of African American Story Telling by Linda Gross and Marian Barnes. If you don’t have a copy, you can buy the book here or read it here by scrolling to page 25.

Step 1. Start a God’s Eye and keep it going until the two sticks are held firmly in place by the string. Click here for God’s Eye instructions

Step 2. Color images of animals from the story. We found free coloring pages for a bear, cooter (turtle), buzzard, eagle, tiger, and -of course- a rabbit online. Then we pasted them all together into this 2 page document and made copies on cardstock.
