Arctic Animals

This week we've been making Arctic Animal silhouette art in Kids Club. The craft is great because we get to break some of the rules that we work on all the time and have the opportunity to be flexible with our rigidities. The supplies we used were animal cut outs (we have wolves, penguins, hares, seals, walruses, and polar bears), white paint, blue construction paper, and toothbrushes.

 The kids first get their paint shirts on, a few of them practice buttoning up the shirts too, then put their name on their work and begin with the art!

Next we use masking tape to secure the shapes to the construction paper and then paint over them with the white paint and toothbrush. We get to bend the rules by making a huge mess and paying no attention to lines. Once the paint is dry we remove the animal shapes and have some beautiful frosty looking silhouettes.
