Please Don't Eat the Artwork


Ladybug Picnic

Leave a comment

This lesson was inspired by this post from Art With Ms Gram!


On the first day we watched this little tune:

Kinders drew a wavy line and used a texture mat and crayons to make “dirt” They painted over it with brown liquid water-color. Then, they used white oil pastels to draw clouds in the sky and painted over those with blue liquid water-color. This landscape composition became the background.


The next day, we used yellow, blue, and green tempera paint and forks to create textured green paper for the stems and leaves.


Next we cut out and glued the stems and leaves. Red construction paper and sharpies were used to make the ladybugs. We also read this book:


This was a great project to end the year with 🙂
