Q-Tip Art

Lesson plans were set (not in stone) and materials had been gathered.  I read through all the fabulous blogs and find that Preschool Daze has the same materials in mind!  Her project turned out great.  Open-ended art.  Love it.  So, our project today involved Q-tips (well, actually cotton swabs-didn't want to waste money on the REAL ones).  We used Q-tips in place of paintbrushes and then after our picture was complete, used gooey glue to add Q-tips to our paintings.  I wasn't sure how this would turn out.  I was so thrilled when I saw them actually building things with these cotton swabs.  Houses, gates around gardens, grass blades and even Darth Vader had his light saber!

  2. I love Q-tip art. And getting messy! But I've never incorporated the swabs into the art. We may need to do this soon.
