My school just hit me with a "Writer's Showcase" night tomorrow. Long story short, I found out on Friday that we need to have some form of a writing piece out in the hallway tomorrow night. Parents and families will be able to come for an hour or so and walk the hallways, checking out great writing pieces from each class. My kids are 4, so obviously there will not be writing work hanging around like there will be in the 5th grade wing. We write plenty, but nothing that I can grab and put in the hallway tomorrow and look decent. At any rate, I had an idea to have my kids make kites to hang outside, and then have them write a short description sentence "My kite is ________." Easy enough, but I would like to have them do something creative to decorate the kites and I haven't been able to come up with anything all weekend. I need something simple, fast, and quick drying. We have already done marble painting, water bottle spraying, plastic cup painting, sponge painting. Any other simple ideas? I have heard good things about feather painting but I'm not sure about it!
