We drew wavy lines on a piece of white paper and then painted over them with cool colored tempera cakes. The kids were amazed that their crayon lines showed up through the paint.
The next week, each student glued down two pieces of yarn. Then they used warm colored tissue paper to create a beautiful patchwork design.
The next week, we did a step-by-step seahorse drawing on the warm colored paper. Students cut and glued it to their cool colored background and added details like seaweed, sea creatures, and even mermaids and buried treasure!
These are so precious and look great on a display with 1st grade’s Tiny Seed collages.
