What to do:
- sharing a
large sheet of paper, children create their favorite dish eaten for Thanksgiving.
Later, attach four 'legs' to the picture and display as a large dining room
table full of food.
How to do it:
- a mural is a picture
made as a group that depicts many parts of a theme (ie. A river flowing
through the length of the paper will help define a common horizon for some
of the children so the finished image looks like it flows)
- use heavy brown
paper (or white craft paper on a roll) and tempera paint
- place paper on floor
(allow approx. 2’ per child)
- divide parts
of mural up by drawing a border line to indicate each child’s working space
the theme in everyone’s imagination through story or pictures or simply
talking about it!
- Everyone uses
their space to create their part of the theme
