Flowers in Hand, Kindergarten

 This is a very cute simple project for Kindergartners.  I found the basic idea for this lesson at Artrageous Afternoon.  This project is based on Picasso's Hands With a Bouquet
 To begin this lesson, I had my students trace their hand.  This hand was then cut out and glued to the bottom of the construction paper.  Next, students create tissue paper flowers and glue it to the paper.  Lastly, students draw stems and leaves with oil pastels. 
These are adorable!


  1. love it. i do not teach kindergarten art, but I can adapt this to grade 1...maybe for my next project!

  2. Love the tissue paper flowers! My 1st's did a similar lesson when we started school in Sept. They traced and cut their hands from green paper and it became the leaves at the bottom of the stems. We painted and drew our flowers using simple shapes and lines.
