Students will use their own footprints to make baby chicks.
What You Need:
- Yellow tempera paint
- Wash tubs
- Large construction paper
What You Do:
- Each student chooses a construction paper for background.
- Kids take one shoe and sock off. (Giggling will follow)
- Have students come up one at a time, to gently dip their foot in the yellow tempera paint.
- Help student "hop" over to their paper (which is placed on the floor).
- Each will step on their paper, making a footprint.
- The heel becomes the chick's 'head'
- As paint is drying, kids may wish to sprinkle on glue to add cornmeal, so their chick has something to eat.
- Kids decorate their footprint to look like a new Spring chick. Kids can use orange paint to add a beak and black paint for the feet.
