Pinterest inspired Mother's Day Sculpture

that I found recently....



My 1st graders created a painted paper stem paper on 12 x 18 paper
using tempera paint and paint scrapers.

Who wants to use a boring piece of green paper? 


I had different green paper's for them to choice from. 


And on a 9 x 12 pink paper that I pre-folded for them in 6 squares,  they painted flowers using
 Rose Colors. I had them paint an orange dot in the middle first 
and then we painted the flowers Painted Paper style.
I also used Laura's lesson to paint these flowers in our hallway. Love them! 


On day two we put the sculpture together. 


The student's fan folded the green paper. This was harder than I thought. I stapled it at the top.
They then added flower details with oil pastels and cut the flowers out.
One of my super smart artist boys figured out that we need to taco fold the flowers 
before we glued them.



We did little math and talked about symmetry when we placed the flowers on the stems.

Super successful and I am doing this again next year! 



Hope you had a wonderful Mother's day like I did.
