Fabric Paint in large bottles - green and brown
Fabric Paint in small bottles with points - various colors
Bug rubber stamps
Sponge Paint brushes
"kitchen" sponges (those yellow ones)
First you paint their hand and arm in brown with the sponge paint brush. You need the student to hold up their hand facing you so you paint the arm in the correct spot. If they lay the arm flat while you paint you paint the wrong part of the arm.
Then have the student spread out their fingers. Put the hand down first and then help them put the arm down straight like a trunk of a tree.
Take "kitchen" sponges and cut them into various size triangles so they can use green paint to make the grass and leaves.
Today we finished the tree trunk and leaves and grass. Tomorrow we will add bugs, a slogan and the year. We will wear them on Earth Day to clean up the school grounds.
Stay tuned for Day 2 directions!
