Beetles K8

Five year olds.
This is another class who are dealing with 'mini beasts' as part of their enquiry.
The warm up observational drawing today was their shoe.
Followed by a discussion about beetles. They filled a page with black crayon drawings of beetles.
They drew beetles with pen, along a piece of wood, which they coloured with pencil.
They used sticks and black ink to draw the beetles. They drew the beetle with white crayon on white paper and put dye over it.
They used prepared cardboard shapes to make a 'shape beetle'. They used water colour paint to colour their beetle.
Six pieces of art.

We are 'beetled out' now.


  1. What a fun project! These have so much personality :)

  2. Busy little people well done! I presume this was done all in one day.

  3. Thanks Vicki. Yes, one 'full on' day. The little guys don't linger over their art like the older children can, so I always have more than enough to fill the day.

    1. Congratulations, I only have the 5 year old's for an hour and a half!
