Kindergarten ART project

I did this lesson in Kindergarten a while back and it was a huge success!!!

The kids took their imagination on a safari through lioness territory.  

We read the book..... The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney

and.... talked about what a "mane" is...

Oil pastels was our medium... no pencils or erasers allowed...

It was fun to see all the different lions come to life...
