Art Book Page 6: Texture Bugs
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Students will learn about different textures as they make texture bugs.

What You Need:

  • Texture Bug Handouts
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Markers/Crayons
  • Fun fur (fake fur)
  • Sand
  • Glitter
  • Sponges
  • Small carpet scraps
  • Aluminum foil
  • Other textural items
  • 12″ x 18″ construction paper for the book page

What You Do:

Texture is the way something feels or looks. Talk to your students about different kinds of texture – soft, bumpy, smooth, scratchy etc.

Explain that everything has texture and have your students look for different textures in the room.

Hand out the texture bug printables and invite students to color them using markers, crayons, etc. Then have them cut them out, “bubble style”. This means they don’t have to cut around every little line – just cut out rounded shapes…
