Kindergarten Colors

     "Red and Yellow make Orange!!!" That was what one little guy exclaimed as he finished using Mod Podge to apply red and yellow tissue to his paper plate fish. By the time he had sponge painted red and yellow to make a paper plate fish scale for the large fish, he definitely had the concept down solid!! I saw both of these ideas on 2 separate blogs. Part of the project was inspired by Happily Ever After blog here. However, I have forgotten where I saw the idea for the large fish. If it was you, thank you, we loved making it!
     This small class (10 kids) of kindergarteners comes to the Art Room accompanied by their teacher, a student teacher and 2 instructional assistants to help with motor skills, etc. With all those adults I could set up 3 separate centers (2 of them outdoors on the patio) with enough supervision to help students be successful. Kids inside practiced brush skills making their small fish. One of the outside groups made circle prints on blue paper for their water, and the other group sponge painted the large fish scales.  These were very active groups -- what fun!!


  1. Hi, Christie......I love this bulletin board. I posted a link to it over at my blog: Bulletin Boards to Remember......


  2. Hi Christie! We loved this fun, artful display and featured it at our blog, Bulletin Board Ideas! We were certain to give photo/idea credit, as well as a link back to your blog, but we'd love for you to take a look at it. Since we write about bulletin boards for every classroom, we adapted the idea a bit for a back-to-school theme, if that's acceptable :) If there are any problems we'll be sure to take the post down immediately!

    Thanks so much!
