In Kindergarten, I like to use fool-proof lesson plans, and this was a new one that they LOVED!
This was my inspiration, found on Pinterest. I love the cartoon-y look of the cat!
I started out with the students making a giant X in black crayon on the paper. We went from there filling in facial features, stripes, and watercolor painting the background.
I think if I could teach a grade of Art forever, it'd be Kindergarten. They are just so honest about their artwork and savor and adore every little thing they learn and create!!!
