Lions (No Tigers, No Bears....just a Kindergarten Circus!)

What a hoot! This make ya wanna have a belly gut ROAR! Ok, we did them the same way as we did the elephants in a previous post. They are huge! I beleive they measure like 12+ Inches by 27+ inches!
Let me break down the steps for Ya:
  • watercolored with brown-zy and gold-zy colors on 8x12 piece of white paper
  • Once this dried kids had to cut out and glue behind face
  • I had body, face and ears cut out
  • Kids had to glue head to mane
  • Kids had to glue ears on (hee hee some of them are priceless!)
  • Kids had to glue the body to the head
  • Then we had to add detail to the face (My oh my....some of them were a HOOT!)
  • They added texture to the body with crayons creating a "fur" effect
  • Some wanted to add they did!
  • Our Lions are definitely mixed media, but turned out super cute and fun to make! They will make an awesome backdrop for the K Circus!
On a funny note, I have had 2 hilarious moments in art class this month. You like your job when you go home and share stories like this (or blog about them):

Story #1: 3 first grade boys are sitting at a table close to my desk and I am close by within ear shot. I am looking for something like an ice pick to perform surgery on a poor Elmer's glue all know how that goes. Well, I hear one boy #1 say to boy #2..."Hey, do you like art?" Ok, not knowing what will come out next...Boy #2 says..."Yes, I like art". Ok....drum rolllllllll...............Boy #1,#2 & #3 all bust out singing that Tim McGraw song...."I like it. I love it. I want some more of it...." (Roll On Floor Laughing now...ROFL)

Story #2: First grade girl at clean up time in art today. She says to me. "Mrs. Daniel, I got a joke for ya" I say, "oh yeah". She tells me the joke.  JOKE: Why did Cinderella get kicked off the soccer team? Me: ???? I don't know? Why? Punchline:  Well, Mrs. Daniel Cinderella kept running from the BALL! (get it?) LOL 

2 Side Stories....When daughter of 1969 was 4 years old. We lived in Tallahassee. ...Trace Adkins had this song...called One Hot Mama.  Well, Mary Frances bust out in the car one day on the way home from school....Mama...You are ONE WART HOG Mama! No kidding! (Can you say, maybe she was thinking of the Lion King Cartoon???) Priceless....In previous post, We told you that we do love music in our family...Ok, here is another one....MF (short for Mary Frances, especially these days when we text!) was like 3 years old. We still lived in Peachtree City, GA. On the way home from church (Fayetteville Methodist Church), we are jamming out in car. She is singing Wilson Picket's famous song...Mustang Sally. Yep, we hear her and we are like...hum....are those the words??? Nope, she was just a singing MUSTARD and SALAD instead of Mustang Sally.....bhahahahahahahahahaha!
