All of our projects for the K-1 came to a screeching halt, so that they could make super awesome Mother’s Day Gifts!
Kindergarten made something I had swiped from my favorite site, Pinterest, “watercolor” scarves! They used color Sharpies to color all over plain white scarves.
The Sharpie did go through the cloth and onto the table, but this wasn’t problematic because our next step, to squirt rubbing alcohol onto the scarves! The last person at the table who received the last step, also wiped up the table with their scarf, to get even more color! (And also got the Sharpie off the table)
1st Grade made a version of Kandinsky Circles to make flowers for Mother’s Day. They “drew” with scissors to make their circles, working on their fine motor skills and hand to eye coordination.
Finally one of the 4th grade classes had completed their woven flowers weeks ago, so we brainstormed to come up with the perfect project for mothers day for them. They all chipped in a dollar, and I went to the Dollar Store and purchased plates. The next day they decorated them with black Sharpies. I gave them ideas with Zentangle, because I wanted them to work the whole period. I took them home that night, and baked them.
I’m sure there were a lot of happy momma’s yesterday!
