Celebrating with Lady Liberty

We can't believe it is the end of our second week already! We had some fun with our friends today and made a Statue of Liberty in celebration of our Nation's Birthday tomorrow.

To add a twist to our project we used poms and clothes pins as a paint brush for our Statues of Liberty, as well as a stencil Mrs. Burns made us. We worked on fine motor control while holding our poms and clothes pins. We practiced making our paint jump lightly on the page to get a fun sponge painted look. We also talked about what happens when you mix red and blue! This project's end result gave us three pictures each! One of the stencil, around the stencil, and in the inside cut out of the Statue of Liberty. We had a lot of fun with this project!

Here is an example of our work before we separated the stencil from the paper.

Here is one aspect of our project - after the stencil was removed.
