1st Grade Art with Mrs. Brown We start by reading "Little Blue and Little Yellow". I give each student 1 ball of red, 1 yellow, and 1 blue. Then I have them break each ball into 4 evenly sized balls. Adaptions 4 Kidz Junior loves glitter, its messy, sparkly, and fun to feel, so that makes it perfect as far as Junior is concerned.A few years ago we tried glittering our pumpkin and since then Junior has to have a glitter pumpkin every fall. We can have others decorated differently but we still have to have one covered in glitter. Be warned this is one messy activity but still lots of fun and you end up with a very sparkly pumpkin(probably also a sparkly kid, carpet, chair, table, etc. ) To start you need a pumpkin(preferably one with a stem, we learned that the hard way yesterday), glue, a small dish, paint brush, and glitter. The pumpkin Junior decorated yesterday only had glitter on it. Place your pumpkin on a sheet of paper to keep the glitter mess to a minimum. Then start spreading on the glue. Then start sprinkling on the glitter. Let it dry and then glitter the rest of it.
