The Mixed-Up Chamelon Art Project

I am volunteering  in the elementary classrooms every other week this year doing art projects with the students.
Ashton is in 2nd, and Ava is Kindergarten, so they will all be early elementary based.  I thought I'd share some of them with you, in case you were looking for different ideas to do art with kids!  :)

Ashton's class read this book last week in class.  Eric Carle is such an inspiration that it was easy to come up with this project!

I made this drawing and included the sentence on the bottom.
I loved all the answers they came up with them...  :)

I came in and worked with five children at a time.
Each child got a paper plate palette with a variety of colors.
Each color was painted a different color, and while the paint was still wet, I taught them how to use a toothpick to scratch different textures.

Feel free to download the template I made.
Right click to save it and make some cool mixed-up chameleons of your own
Have fun...:)
