I burst onto the scene in the seventies! Born right smack in the middle of the decade, I have embraced being a product of this fascinating period in our history. It's a shame its vast cultural contributions are often a punchline, whittled down to bell-bottoms and belittled for The Bee Gees. I am not ashamed to admit my arts & crafts style is heavily (and lovingly) influenced by the decade's kitschy decor of the times. So it's no surprise that it also sneaks into my tot school activities for Emilia!
While Emilia napped next to me yesterday, I quickly put together this color matching activity. It's sunny disposition (and easy DIY preparation) makes it hard not to smile too!
I simply traced a small saucer on yellow construction paper, grabbed my much-loved Bic markers, and chilled out by drawing and coloring for a few minutes. I made sure we had stickers that matched the strips of paper. As a perfectionist, I cannot sing the praises enough of investing in purchasing a paper cutter/trimmer! Such a time-saver, and, be still my heart, clean edges. Swoon.
Where was I? Oh yes, then I adhered the "rainbow rays" to the drawing with a glue stick.
I swear, preschool art is so zen.
Stick around for more variations of this fun and easy project coming soon!
