Cute turtles make testing days much more fun.I love these little turtles so much and so do my kindergartners. This may just be the Night of the Arts project for kindergarten next year. This lesson took three days. On the first, we mixed green paint and painted the paper plate. During the next class, we printed circles and traced the legs and head. We drew the eyes with oil pastel, cut out the pieces, and glued it all together using glue sponges during the last class.
Color Mixing on Coffee Filters- Primary colors are one of the first art concepts I like to introduce young kids to in art. First, because they are a basic building block for for understanding how to make all kinds of things. And second, because mixing colors is kind of magical. Color mixing on coffee filters is a fun introduction to what happens when those primary colors mix together!
