I got this idea from Pinterest and thought it would be an effective activity to do with a junior classroom. Robyn, whose room I had been in several times, had a wall that was begging for a bit of artwork and was happy to have some children's artwork to fill the gap in the last two weeks of school.
You simply need:
- black A4 sized cartridge paper for each child
- a green crayon each
- a paint tray with yellow, red, blue and green paint
- children with fingers.
We started first by drawing a wiggly line using the green crayon across the page. Then we used a finger to dip in the red paint and tap it along the line at random points. Then repeat with another finger with the yellow paint, repeat again with a third finger with the green paint and again a fourth finger with the blue paint.
You could try and match up the lines from page to page if you are fussy enough....
I then finger painted a title to got with the display using black paper and the same paints. Below are the finished works of this Year 1/2 class. I didn't go back to the school to see the wall display, but I'm sure it was awesome.
