Young children enjoy problem solving. Invite them to use their knowledge to design, make, and decorate a unique creation.
Collect a variety of clean, recycled objects for children's constructions, such as paper-towel tubes, produce trays, and boxes.
Place the collected objects on a table for students to view. Inform them that they will be asked to select a variety of objects to use in creating an original piece of artwork. Address any questions that students may pose.
Invite students to select five items to use for their art projects. Inform them that hey may construct anything they can imagine with these five items. Encourage students to try several designs until they find the one that pleases them most. Provide students class time to experiment.
Once students have placed their five items, give them Crayola® School Glue to fasten their pieces together. Closely supervise students while using the glue. Once students are done gluing their items together, dry constructions overnight.
Students put on their Crayola Art Smocks and cover their work areas with newspaper. Invite students to paint their constructions using Crayola Washable Kid's Paint and So Big® Brushes. Dry overnight.
Provide students with class time to share with classmates how they developed their Find Five project.
