Painted Sunflowers-Kindergarten

Kindergarten started this two day (1 hour per class) project by painting 4 pieces of paper- 12X18 blue, 9x12 yellow/orange, 2x12 green & 6x9 brown. I thought it was going to be too much but they did really great! We worked on brush strokes, pulling rather than pushing paint & washing out our paint brushes. On day two I had pre-cut the yellow-orange sheets into 2x3 rectangles so the students could cut off corners and round edges for an oval shape. I also had them trace a small circle lid 3 times in order to see where to glue the petals, a circle was traced for the brown centers, stems added and a they fringed the grass. This could be used for an Eric Carle project as well. Fun stuff y'all!

  1. very pretty. I like how you used this simple and sweet lesson to teach the kids about brush care and give painting tips! Thanks for sharing.
