Crows in a Tree

Spontaneous art projects are often the most enjoyable and this one was no exception. A whole sleeve of conical cups used for drinking water, met with an unfortunate accident when they were dropped outside. Rather than throwing them away, I decided to use them in an art project. By folding the pointed end over they made great bird shapes. I had the students paint them black, glue on a yellow triangle of construction paper for the beak and dot two yellow eyes with a Q-tip. The cups made great crows. The paper cup crows needed a background. The students sponged blue paint on to paper to create a night sky, glued a brown piece of construction paper for a tree trunk and then painted two brown branches. They then glued the crows on to the background, balancing them on the branches and lastly drew on legs and feet. I always enjoy being able to recycle materials 🙂
