Oh how I LOOOOOOOVE this project! This will be first grade’s Kids Kreations project and I really hope a lot of you parents buy them because I want to see them on t-shirts, coffee mugs, mouse pads, everything!
We read Eric Carle’s Mr. Seahorse. We discussed warm and cool colors, painted the background using cool colors and then made a tissue paper collage of warm colored tissue paper. After that, I demonstrated drawing objects from shapes (we broke the body of the seahorse down into recognizable shapes like rectangle for the mouth, circle for the head, oval for the body, etc). Then they cut out the seahorses and added details like seaweed, bubbles, etc.
So stinking CUTE!!!! I love them 🙂
