Kids love painting paper. Place a piece of white paper and a few tubs of paint on a table and watch ‘em go at it. Pure joy. If you think Kinders love this technique, watch your fifth graders. They go all out.
This project is simple. Set out 2 pieces of white paper per student and approx 3-5 tubs of paint (reds, blues, greens, yellows…mix it up) per table. Place large brushes in the paint tubs. I suggested creating two coordinating sheets of paper, explaining that one paper will be used for the bodies and the other paper will be used for details. Well, the kids barley listened and came up with their own agenda. Honestly? It worked out much better.
Anything to add another dimension to the project.
