This year, I switched up my Mouse Paint project a little bit by adding a cat to the artwork. I read the book which does a great job discussing color mixing for my kindergarteners.
On the first day, students used a large circle tracer to trace out a cat head. Then they used a black crayon to draw paws, eyes, ears, whiskers, etc. They cut these out and when they went to glue the cat on to our large sheet of white paper, we glued it towards the top, as if the cat is peaking over the edge of the paper. I got this idea from Vin Giannetto. You can check out his Facebook page here!
The 2nd day, we did what we have done in the past for the mice. You can view those details here. Thanks to Cassie Stephens for that portion of the project!
This was a quick one day project that I got from the lovely Cassie Stephens!
We hadn't done any color mixing in a while so I thought it would be a good idea to practice up on that. We read the book Mouse Paint which tells of three mice who get paint on their feet and accidentally mix their footsteps together to create new colors.
We drew 3 adorable mice using black crayon and mixed two primary colors together under each of them to create one of the secondary colors.
