Spring Chickens

First graders had so much fun making their "spring chickens." First they created colorful paper using tissue paper prints. They saved the tissue and used it again for the fluffy feathers. They practiced drawing and cutting shapes to create the eyes, beak, wings, legs, and feet for their birds.

  2. These are so cute! How did you do the tissue printing/what did you do?

  3. All you do it just put tissue paper onto white paper with water, let it dry, and pull it off. If it's bleeding tisuse paper, it leaves a beautiful print. I like Spectra brand the best!
