I saw this guy from Whimsy Workshop on Pinterest and Facebook and knew that my kiddos would love him! Yesterday our morning message (prescribed by our curriculum daily) was "I am an artist. You can be an artist too." Bingo, today is the day for our art project!
I started out by showing the kids the step-by-step directions include in the blog post from Whimsy Workshop (linked above). I did this in small groups due to a limited number of supplies (I had to borrow chalk pastels from our high school art department- Thanks Jennifer!). I then went through each step with the group showing them her picture and reading the directions.
I ended up cutting the bears out for them because a couple of them said they didn't want to cut their ears off. I caved and did this for them (normally I would have them try it).

As you can see, they were kind of light on the white, but I still think they did a great job!
