I try to keep a variety of art supplies in the house and knew I had watercolors and water color paper. I thought I had a large stack of construction paper only to find out as I was setting out supplies that the children had used it all! Next time I will be sure to double check. I did find one piece of black cardstock that we were able to use.
First the children painted in their sunset on the paper using orange and yellows and black for the ground. Then those that wanted a tree painted in a black tree. They chose different African animals: zebra, elephant, giraffe, and lion and traced those shapes onto the black cardstock. Once the paint was dry they glued the animals on to the picture.
