Earth Day - Environment Art Projects
Experimenting with mixing paints with other materials is a great sensory process for children to experience. Last term my year 1 and 2 classes were covering environment and saving the world by recycling.
We combined the topic and the skill by making puffy paint worlds.
I gave the children a blue piece of sugar paper with a large circle drawn on it. We used green paint and shaving foam mixed together gentle to apply as the land masses of the world. When left to dry the paint hardens. This process generated much discussion about what other materials we could mix paint with.
