The kinders started off by adding patterns to half a sheet of paper. Then they chose one color and painted over it. Lastly, thy used combs to scratch design into the paint. Using the combs helps to reveal the bright colors of the pastels underneath.
The second day, we learned how to draw a cup of hot chocolate. We incorporated the lines that we have learned about to decorate the mug. We also made ART MAGIC by using white crayons to add marshmallows to the mug! Then we painted them with itty bitty brushes using tempera cakes. The kids were blown away when their marshmallows began to magically appear as they painted!
The final day, we glued down a doily, carefully cut out their mugs (I cut out the inside of the handles) and glued them on top of the doily. Lastly, I came around and added some white puffy paint for steam.
We celebrated with a delicious hot chocolate party after it was all said and done. Yum!
