And it's not just any paper - it's fadeless duet paper (which is different colors on either side)! Oh, the kids were so excited about this, "fancy paper." As with most art projects in the classroom, I showed this to the children at circle time and set up the materials on a shelf for them to choose as an activity, if desired. I appreciate how this lesson is a natural extension of the Practical Life Folding Cloths activity, which I plan to re-introduce to several students (as it has been sitting, very lonely, on the shelf!).
The designs and colors created by this technique with the duet paper are crisp and cheerful:
|What delightful color in our hallway!|
