This lesson can be found in our KinderArt Club membership and I’ve decided to make it available for everyone.
In this lesson, children will draw sunflower-like flowers using glue. They will then fill in the blanks using chalk pastel, crayons, oil pastels or paint.
It’s a fun, open-ended activity your students are sure to enjoy!
What You Need:
- White Sulphite or other heavy drawing paper (12″ x 12″)
- Black glue (recipe included)
- Chalk Pastels
- Optional: Crayons and/or watercolors and/or oil pastels
- Messy mats (to protect tables)
What You Do:
Show students how to hold the glue container. They can use two hands to squeeze the glue onto the paper. They should not worry about creating perfect lines!
Start by making a big circle on the center of the paper.
Add big flower petals that radiate around the circle.
Make a swirl in the center of the flower. Or, dab a few dots.
