Pre K Rainbow Sculptures!

Who doesn't love a rainbow!

I'm soooo glad you stopped by for this!!

Do you want to try making a sculpture with your Pre K art class? This is a really cute idea and I wanted to share it with you. It's all about rainbows! And if you teach Pre know they love everything about rainbows.

Take a look! 

The lesson involves Model Magic (or Sculpty), pipe cleaners and cotton balls.

Start off having the students roll/make two balls with the clay. The clay will become the base for the rainbow. The bases give the stability for the rainbow as the pipe cleaners are inserted.

After the children have rolled out the two clay balls/bases, let the children pick out their rainbow colored pipe cleaners. I let them pick out four colors, you could let them pick more.

The pipe cleaners are them inserted in between the two clay balls. The clay balls art then slowly pushed closer together. As you are adjusting the positions, the pipe cleaners start to arch into the rainbow shape. After you achieve the rainbow arch, flatten the two clay balls to add stability to the rainbow.

Wait a day for the clay bases to dry. When the clay is dry, the children can then clue cotton balls around the clay base. This will turn the clay bases into the clouds holding the rainbow! Glitter can then be added to the clouds to really make them sparkle!

They really look great to have on display as you can see above.

Hope you like these! The Pre K certainly did!!!

Try it and let me know how it worked out in the comments below.
