Kindergartener’s Paths for Playgrounds

Before we can build our playgrounds, we must design the ground. How do we move on a playground? How do we play? We looked at examples of playgrounds and paths, and then created our own. We used foam core for the base, drew our designs with colored pencils.

We used small plastic animals, with their feet dipped in paint, to create the paths that we make as we play.

New Artists Begin to Explore LINES

Young artists at Laurel Dell School began their line research today. We began by using our eyes, arms, imaginations, and even our whole body to SHOW the lines we could see or imagine.We painted more lines using tempera cakes and thick and thin brushes.

Using our whole body to make lines.

Next we used our black china markers to draw the different lines we could see or imagine.
