For this project, students painted sunset stripes and then created their penguins and icebergs with construction paper. Finally, adding felt hats, mittens and scarves gave this project a collage look.

“I think this is my favorite project we’ve ever done! The kids got so creative and they all turned out adorable.”-Sarah G.

“This is a teacher led directed draw. They used markers to color the snowmen, crayons to draw swirls, and then watercolor for the background. I tell the kids they can be creative and do a pattern of their choice for the scarf. They come out really cute! “-Ashley L.

“This project is a 3-step process.

  • First step: draw the umbrella (on water color paper if available). Use black sharpie to trace lines and crayons for resist art. Cut it out.
  • Second step:Cut a yellow ‘triangle’ with rounded corners from construction paper. Then, cut out two rectangles and a circle out of black construction paper. (Cut the circle in half…instant math talk!)
  • Third step: Background is wet on wet watercolor crayon resist. Took us a wile, but I would do it again!”-LaDonna P.
