Great project for first day of class. Give each student a pice of gridded paper. Color in one of the squares with a design then pass on to the next person to fill in the next square. Use Crayola watercolor pencils or markers on vellum.
Idea: students bring in one to two fruits or vegetables to observe and paint. Art Projects for Kids: Vegetable Garden Watercolor Painting. This will be great to celebrate our spring garden planting we are doing.
