Recycled Paper Seahorses

This project involved using recycled paper. Students created an underwater scene featuring sea horses. (Check out the following link for wonderful lesson plans courtesy of Deep Space Sparkle; First, they painted an ocean scene using blue and violet wavy lines. Next, they had to draw their seahorses. Some students used a sea horse template while others chose to draw their own on the back side of the painted paper. They then carefully cut out the shapes and glued them on to their painted ocean background. Students then used Elmer’s, white glue to create a design on their sea horses which were then embellished with glitter. Great week in the art room Kindergarten and 1 st grade!
