Hoot

Ceramic Owls. Kinder-kiddo's

I used a paper plate to cut round ceramic slabs for my kinder kiddos.

 The kids then scored and folded sides to form the owl wings. 
I had then use plastic forks for scoring.

 Then fold the top to make the head. Pinch and or shape the ears.

 Using a Popsicle stick, I had the kids press the end into the center of the owl to make feather impressions. Then they used a pencil (both ends) to draw any designs on the wings and face.

 I helped them pressed the end of a a dowel  into the clay for the eyes.
After the owls were dry and fired. The kids then painted their owls.

 They glued buttons for the eyes.

 The Kids loved this project! I haven't met a child who doesn't like to work with clay.

Koalas


Koalas 

by 4, 5 and 6 year old's


I started out with a home made stencil. For the 4 and 5 years of age , I drew a out line of the Koala. For the leg, arm and a few other details I  drew a broken line.  All the kids traced the whole koala. Making the broken lines complete. They added the face, fingers, fur, leaves..ext.  The 4 images below are my teacher samples.
Before we started, I handed out a work sheet of shapes that are in the koala drawing. You can do this with any drawing for young kids. Now that they have warmed up their hand and fingers... we're ready to draw!!!



Here are some of the kids drawings.



Next week we will paint our picture!! Great job kids!!
