2nd graders did a phenomenal job with these fun castles!
We began this project by playing a dice rolling game to creatively build a castle. I used one from Expressive Monkey. I absolutely LOVE all of the roll and draw activities offered on this site, I have almost all of them for my students to use for free draw and different projects. I think it is a really fun and creative way to make artwork that is still very guided (step-by-step) but also open ended because you never know what exactly you will end up with!
Next, students drew their design onto painting paper. They traced over their lines with sharpie and then used watercolors to paint.
I love how creative students were able to be with these. Students made castles with mythical creatures, under water, in the clouds, and even for their favorite sport’s teams!
