Children’s Day is a holiday on May 5th in Japan where families hang carp kites for each child in their family.
Kindergarten students made kites to hang in our art room until May 5th when they will go home.
Students traced a fish pattern. We drew from observation adding fins, tail, scales, etc. Students colored with crayons and then we painted over top to fill in any missed areas. Kinders are still working on their coloring and patience of filling in large areas without it looking scribbly so the glitter watercolor was a nice touch.
To finish, we added string to hang and tissue paper to the tail.
