I Could {Sooo} Make That!


Kid's Project #01 {Finish The Picture}

Posted on October 13, 2010 at 1:40 PM
I got this idea from a nifty li'l site called: Art Projects For Kids
Kathy Barbro is an art teacher in Cali for K-5 students...
and loves every minute of it!
Here is a few of her entries:


She posted this idea called: "Finish the picture" and I figured I could try it with the kids at my church and see how they did. 
{We formed "Star Club" with the children ages 5-12}

Turns out they abolutely loooved it and I loved seeing the results!  I actually found more talent than I ever imagined out of our little "Stars"  They instanly grasped the concept and went right to work. {I featured some of the results at the bottom}

All you need for this project is:
Crayons, Art Paper, Glue stick & Magazine images
{and construction paper if you want to mount it. 
This gives it a cute border}

This project is easy to do and is good for having them cut out the images or could also work if you pre-cut the images and glue them on the paper beforehand.  {which is what I did.  It keeps the kids away from scissors and doesn't make a mess of scrap paper.}

I picked pictures that had movement, pictures of animals, food, familiar children celebrities, and cars {the boys looooved those!}... The possibilities are endless!

Then after I explained the process and gave them their images on paper.  They let their imaginations do the work.

Here are a few of my faves:

Here's the website for further ideas:

Have fun!
