I had to do a 20 minute activity 2 yrs ago for orienbtation day w/ kinders. I
showed them Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" ptg. Also some other pics of flowers. I
had each table w/ a primary colors ink pad, and a big sponge in a pan. The
kids layered ink dabs w/ their fingers to create flower shapes, or dragged
them to create lines- I demo'd and explained about color mixing w/ the
primaries. they had 9x12 paper.
I just made sure they wiped their fingers off after each bblot to minimize
the mixing up on the actual ink pads. I had them use baby wipes to clean
thier hands. THeir parents were also right there watching.
I got mega praise from my principal and it made me look brilliant- the
results were very good !!!!
Hope this helps
