Clowning around

You need:
  1. coloured construction paper 32 by 23 cm
  2. white drawing paper A5 size
  3. oil pastels
  4. scissors
  5. glue
  6. tempera paint

Look at pictures of clowns on the digiboard and talk about how they recognize a clown.

Give each student a coloured construction paper and a white sheet of A5 size. Let them cut the corners of the white sheet, and let them paste this clown's face on the coloured sheet. Draw a clown using oil pastels: eyes, nose, mouth, hair, hat, bow etc. Colour the different parts with oil pastels. Outline everything with black.

Use toilet rolls and tempera paint to stamp coloured circles around the clown. Hang them all together on the bulletin board: ready for carnival!

  1. These are so festive! I love the colors and the cheerful expressions. We have display cases in our outdoor hallways and these would definitely brighten things up out there!!

  2. Oh how I love it. I can't wait to try this with my kiddies.

  3. They look really cute, and I love the stamped circles, but I have to admit... clowns creep me out!!

  4. I can't wait to try this at home! Very happy project.

  5. I was just going to say (before reading Phyl's comment) these are so bright and fun, they take away any clown-phobia. :D I'm definitely going to try this lesson. Thanks!

  6. Heel vrolijk! En een goed idee om ze eens wat groter te laten werken (ik bedoel dat ze geen ieniemienie clowntje tekenen ergens in een hoekje of zo)!
