Pie in the Sky (Book by Lois Ehlert) is perfect for lower grade elementary kids. Begin by making painted paper, Eric Carle style, and use the provided templates to create the stunning birds. This lesson is particularly good for inclusion children. No matter what skill level the child possesses, this is truly a successful project.
Splat the Cat by Rob Scotton is not only an endearing book, but "Splat" is easy to paint! Second graders will love creating their own "Splat" using tempera paint and chalk pastel. Add painted paper embellishments and soon the kids will be proclaiming their ambitions as a children's book illustrator!
Do You Have a Hat? by Eileen Spinelli (grades 1-3) describes famous hats worn by famous people. Using the templates provided, children will pick their favorite hat and draw a person to go with it! Watercolors and crafts unite in this creative art lessons for little ones.
Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp by Carol Diggory Shields Illustrated by Scott Nash (grades 2-5) is best taught as a directed line drawing: use the two drawing handouts provided to guide the children through the steps of drawing a dancing dino! Finish the drawing by filling in the shapes with watercolors plus two secret weapons...salt and rubbing alcohol. The children will absolutely LOVE how the dinosaur skins literally ripple!
