Kindergartners begin a sculpture unit by making cylinder and raindrop paper sculptures. We move into working with Model Magic, and end with a wearable art hat! I love to teach this at the end of the school year, and I love to see the kindergartners walking around wearing these adorable hats.
Kindergartners folded the hats by themselves step-by-step out of 18x24" construction paper. We talked about things that you see in spring and started by adding grass to the bottom of our hats. I provided paper and instruction on making stems, leaves, and flowers, but I left the execution of the decorations to them. In total it took us 1.5 hours. The best is seeing a class filing out for the day with their hats on!
