The Name Game
Kids love writing their names. Have you ever noticed? I saw this art activity on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl. The art lesson gave the kids an opportunity to practice their ruler skills and work a little bit with color theory. The could actually see the mistakes with color combinations play our in front of their eyes. This was an easy and enjoyable project for the 4th graders. Oh yeah, I got to learn a little about each kid with this art lesson. FUN!
Explain to kids how to use a ruler.
Draw a grid with the ruler.
Outline the squares.
Paint with watercolor.
The kids write their names and things they love.
Here is one crazy song from American Horror Story about names. Rock it, Jessica Lange!
