Pin Flowers

This project came from an Arts and Activities magazine, and I loved how well it worked with kinders.
1. The students are to draw in pencil near the outside edge of the paper a rounded box (kind of like a TV screen). A zig-zag grass line follows near the bottom of the paper. For the flowers, start by drawing the center circle of the flower up near the top, and then another circle around it. Then petals kind of “jump” around that outside circle. In between the petals, radiating lines are drawn out, with circles added on the ends. Stems are drawn to connect the flowers to the grass, and then leaves may be added. It's best to break this project into steps and have the students follow your large example drawn on a board or large paper.
2. After the pencil drawing is complete, give the students thick black markers to trace all their lines.
3. Distribute markers so that student can fill in all the shapes they've drawn with lots of color.
