Heart Trees

Kindergarten is making these really neat trees along with a few other classes. We simply had different paint stations at different tables. Light baby pink, medium pink, and red paint with big chubby brushes. First we got a white sheet of paper, used a brown marker to make the trunk, traced around the heart template, then went from table to table tabbing on the dots of paint of that color (I encourage light color-dark color) to fill in the heart. Before putting the painting away in the drying rack to dry, we sprinkled on some pink glitter. I also talked about Jim Dine has a lot of heart-themed art and referred to my bulliten board and how I like to tie it into the month of February.
