At school this term I have been teaching my kids all about Japan! We have done some awesome Japanese art and craft!
Here are our cherry blossoms! I started off by painting a thick line of black edicol dye down a piece of long white card. The kids then go a straw and blew the dye so it created branches.
Once they had dried we got purple, pink and green paint. The kids then used their fingers, dipped them into the paint and carefully created the blossoms and leaves. They were then mounted on black card and put up in the classroom!
We also created traditional Japanese fans but the kids painted Australian symbols on them. I love the colour they add to the classroom!
