How cute are these?! They are so colorful and fun! Did you give the kids the shapes already cut or did they cut them? Really nice!
Thanks Pam! The only shapes I gave them were the ovals for the eyes and noses. It was quicker for me to cut those than for them to trace and then cut, mess up, retrace, then cut again... Repeat... :) For the body, we used one of our 9x12 sheets and trimmed off the corners. The head and neck was another sheet cut in half and rounded corners. The legs were the 4th sheet cut in half longways, then each half cut in half again to make 4 long strips. Their last painted sheet was used for the ears, so it worked perfectly for those students who may have missed a day of painting because we had plenty left over to share!
Beautiful! Did you talk about the color wheel or specific color groups each week?
Hi Kelly! Thanks for your comment! We did talk about the color wheel, more specifically analogous and complementary colors. :)
This is fantastic! My 5 year-old will love this project!
Thanks for your comment! The kids loved these!!
Great Art. I'm personally giving my kid art lessons. I'm trying this with him at home, though I'm sure ours would be a lot of mess since he's only a year and a half :)
Thanks for your comment! I also have a 1 1/2 year old and he LOVES to paint! He insists on painting too when his big sisters are creating!
What a great lesson. So many possibilities.
Thanks Janis! I hope to do these again in the spring! :)
