this week at the library we took a look at Japan....
in the spirit of Japanese arts, I watercolored with the grade school kids...Some selected images from books and some simply used the paints.
a finished Mt. Fuji!
with my preschoolers, we made Japanese fans.
from card stock, i cut a traditional fan shape and glued popsicle sticks on the back...
some colored their fans with markers....
and some collaged with origami paper!
emmett wanted to make his all blue and asked if he could paint his..
we used sticks & leaves (a trick we learned from our days at art & school preschool!)
the completed fan has traveled well in our HOT summer!
