2nd grade student created these hilarious flamingos with construction paper, painted paper, oil pastels,feathers and tempera paint.
Students first created the body then added a curvy neck with head. Their neck had to be 3 fingers wide.
( you know, little ones tend to work way to small so I suggested the thickness)
After they assembled the body and legs with various pink construction paper, they made beaks, feet and paper feathers out of pre-painted paper. Students added more feather details with oil pastels then painted with tempera paint feathers on the body. To top it all off, students painted their beaks with black tempera, added real pink feathers, and lastly added an eye.
