The idea for this project came from Colors of My Day blog 🙂
First graders began by listening to the story of The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle. They used blue and purple bleeding tissue paper to create a patchwork background.
Next, we reviewed color mixing and created textured painted paper in orange and green.
Students traced 3 circles onto the orange side and used the green side to create a stem and leaves. They chose construction paper for the petals of their flowers and carefully glued everything down to their tissue paper background.
These turned out so lovely!
