Try this tracing and painting project for a kindergarten art lesson that mixes art and writing. Perfect for those just learning the alphabet.
My school’s big art fundraiser happened every fall, so I tried to work ahead and line up some of my most colorful projects to be prepared. I’ve been happily working with Original Works for about 15 years, and every year parents are always very happy with their products.
This simple project works great for kinders as it really just calls for tracing a template in crayon, and then painting in the boxes. It works for students at all levels of abilities, so that everyone can feel successful.
Wondering how you get an odd number of letters (26) into a grid of 25 boxes? Easy, just put two skinny letters (I and J) in one box.
