Our second graders did these beautiful flamingos. I challenged them to mix colors and they did an amazing job! We used oil pastel for the flamingos and watercolor for the background. I mixed in an iridescent white to some of the watercolor and they kids loved the sparkle…like glitter without the mess!
Our third graders did these patriotic flags, which I think are awesome! We used color copies of the Star Spangled Banner to create the “white” stripes. We then added patterns into the strips of white in between the color copies with all different values of red. The students finished these off by adding patterns in blue to a star, gluing that on to the stripes and choosing patriotic text to glue to the background as well.
