Earlier this year I did a glue resist dinosaur with Kindergarten. I thought it would make an interesting project for Halloween so here it is.
heavy paper like posterboard or watercolor
large round coin or bottle top
extra paper for detail work
Draw out your skeleton scene in pencil first. At school I gave the kids lots of reference photos of skeletons and I had them focus on a basic line drawing.
Don't worry too much about getting the shape of the bones correct. It's a spooky picture so the skeletons actually look better if they are not too perfect.
Using white glue on a flat surface go over the drawing. I reminded the kids to be careful not to fill in the eyes or mouth of the skeleton.
You can even pencil in an x in those places to help them remember.
When the skeletons are covered with glue set aside to dry. Make sure it is a flat surface as you don't want the glue to run.
When the glue is dry get set up for painting. before you start take your coin or round lid and place in the middle of a kleenex.
Gather the kleenex around it and twist together.
Set aside by your painting area.
Start painting in your sky. Its night time but to add some extra interest you can paint in the last remnants of the sunset.
Before the sky has dried take your kleenex wrapped coin....select a good spot for your moon and press into the painting. The kleenex will lift off a moon shape the same size as your coin or lid.
Have a bit of fun with it.
Why not make a spooky skeleton picture today.
See you next time.
