Check out what the artists at Buffalo Elementary are creating!
Thankfulness was the topic at a Sunday school event this spring at church. The speaker mentioned that people who purposefully think of things they are grateful for are more successful and healthy. Students that are thankful perform better in school. I immediately began brainstorming a project I could do at school to encourage my kiddos to be more thankful. The 2nd graders were ready for another project and, because we hadn't explored printmaking yet, we created "Grateful for" prints!
1. Brainstorm things we are thankful for
2. Draw an image that represents what I'm grateful for
3. Transfer image to a piece of foam
4. Use markers to color foam and print!
5. Use ink to print
