Kindergarten lizards!

Oh boy. Kindergarten (and younger grades in general) have never been my strong point, so teaching art from K-6 this year has been a huge stretch. It makes me so happy when I do a lesson with a younger group that just goes so well. These lizards are really just the cutest things I think I've ever seen. They look so weepy and sleepy, and I just love them. I found the idea here.

On the first day, they drew the lizards, then painted them in using watercolor paint. On the second day, they cut them out, then decorated a backing paper. When they were finished coloring, they glued the lizard to the background. A very simple yet adorable lesson!

Ps. My favorite chameleon video of all time is this one. I laugh every time!
