Here's a StArt we did a couple weeks ago. To be honest this wasn't my favorite Dr. Seuss book, but the craft we did along with it was fantastic. I think we will be finding excuses to make many more silhouettes.
|These were the boy's first silhouette projects. I found the idea at That Artist Woman. They turned out great, but they used watercolors so the colors weren't too bright. Mr. T even took his creative liberty and added a lake.|
|For the rest of the silhouettes we used slightly watered down kids poster paint. This produced nice, vivid colors. They used the black foamy craft brushes as their paint brush.|
|The hardest part about this project was getting the kids to work quickly, so they could blend the colors together while the paint was still slightly wet.|
|Princess K made her own masterpieces with the paint & salt.|
