First graders traced their hands with their fingers close together and their thumbs out--this created a "mitten" shape. Don't forget to add a little bit to the bottom to make the bottom of the mitten. We used black paper and construction paper crayons to make patterns and designs on the mittens before cutting them out and gluing them to the blue paper.
Designs were added on the blue paper after the mittens were complete.
Welcome to Super Happy Art Class!
I hope you enjoy looking at the wonderful artwork from Duchesne Academy Lower School. Lower School consists of girls, grades pre-k through fourth. Unfortunately I have not kept record of all the successful projects, but here is a good sampling. Check out the artwork by grade level, but realize that each activity can be used for multi-grades.
