Winter Shape Collage
These projects were created by my Young Fives Kindergarten classes. We began by using bright colors of liquid watercolor on pieces of 12" X 12" watercolor paper. They then sprinkled salt on top and allowed them to dry. During the next class, they wiped the salt from their papers and revealed a "snowy"sky.
Some gorgeous sky papers:
During the next class, we tore a piece of white 9" X 12" construction paper in half horizontally. Half of this paper became the snow along the bottom of their papers. Houses were made from rectangular scraps of paper. I showed the kids how to cut a square piece of paper corner to corner to create a triangle for the roof. Doors, windows, and chimneys were added next.
Building their houses:
Trrees were made by cutting more squares diagonally and stacking the triangles. Tree trunks and pre-cut snowflakes finished their collage. The kids enjoyed creating their winter scenes and reviewed shapes also.
