inside it was y yeek, so we made yellow flowers.
these were tissue paper circles with holes in the center to thread on skewers (cutting off the pointing end first). then a teacher taped the paper and beads were added (secured with hot glue)…. “this is kind of like sewing with wood.” sure it is!
i really can’t explain this because i had nothing to do with it.
but most of the class was involved.
and at the end of the week, i discovered it was all cleaned up.
we cut plastic binder dividers into strips, then snipped more, then pressed them on a piece of laminate, then added another piece of laminate on top.
when the pieces of colored plastic would overlap, we would see color blending. beautiful.
actually, i thought of these as wind-catchers, but the preschoolers exclaimed things like, “oh yeah! a kite!”…so they became kites.
the first step was cutting a hole out of the center. any kind of hole. i learned quickly (and should have known!) to poke the scissor through first (thankfully we avoided hurt children).
then was the tricky work of choosing streamers and gluing them on in rainbow order. oh, tricky.
we had beautiful weather these days…great for kite flying.
a big piece of cardboard.
remaining paint from our rainbow stripes.
3+ bottles of glue.
ahhhhhh. color wheel.
