Memory Quilts and GIVEAWAY
These were some fun paper Memory Quilts that the kindergartners made! Aren't they cute?
We read Tar Beach, by Faith Ringgold and talked about her story quilts.
The children received a square piece of white paper, which had 9 squares pre-drawn in pencil (4 x 4 inches each). I had a variety of scrapbook papers pre-cut into 4 x 4 inch squares. The children glued down their squares and could cut the squares in pieces to make designs.
In the remaining white spots, they drew pictures of memories from their first year of school. Some of the pictures included a cave that the students went on a field trip to and also the baby chicks that we hatched at school.
On my personal art blog, I am hosting a giveaway for a special blog hop. You should check it out and enter to win one item of your choosing from my etsy shop!!
Also, if you are not reading The Art of Education, you should! Erica, one of my blogger friends, is now writing for this online art education magazine. I enjoy reading the posts at this blog.
