Stamped Houses...to be continued



This is a wonderful follow up lesson to the shape stamps we did the previous week (not sure if I photographed). The kindergartners learned to print/stamp by "Hopping like a frog or bunny" and NOT to schwizzle. Schwizzle is when you rub the cardboard or paint with the cardboard.  If you ask my kids about schwizzling...they know and are very serious about it.  Yes, some do, especially students that don't have much painting experience. The urge to smear the paint is strong, but is usually only one or two per class.  Anyway next week we will take these houses and use texture plates to add color and dimension...check back.

  1. Great! I love how we all create our own strange little art vocabulary. One of your kids will transfer to another school and use the word schwizzle with the art teacher, and wonder why SHE doesn't know about schwizzling. It makes me smile.
