My kinders had fun experimenting with pattern this week. They cut out a large circle with a dot pre-printed in the center….then practiced painting “top, bottom, side, side” to create a beautiful pattern. The art room was very quiet as they all whispered “top, bottom, side, side” while they painted! While the flowers dried, they created a very tall stem and leaves and colored those with more patterns. Finally – a bit of glue, and our pattern flowers were ready to hang and admire!
I think the “top, bottom, side, side” part of this project is from an old Arts & Activities lesson- I added the flower stem to extend the pattern play into a 50 minute art session for my kinders.
