Overlapping Printed Circles

preschool art projects
I found kinders love to make simple prints, without any specific results. Styrofoam cups are the perfect tool for this.
This is a simple two week project that can be fun, no matter what the final art looks like.
  • Styrofoam cup
  • Tempera paint
  • Multimedia paper
  • Crayons

WEEK ONE: Students used a styrofoam cup and watered down tempera paint to stamp circles on a sheet of white paper. Overlapping was encouraged. When finished, students moved to a clean table and used circle templates to draw faces, wheels, flowers – anything made from a circle.

WEEK TWO: Students colored in the circles with crayons. My example showed them how to overlap colors, but just coloring inside the shape was a good first step too.
