I can’t get enough of Japanese culture. Sharing it with the kids in my class is so fantastic!

We made these super sweet carp kites. To begin we got large A3 coloured card. The kids drew scale patterns with oil pastel crayons, stuck paper fins on, white eyes and then I stapled the paper around to make a cylinder shape. We then stuck streamers into the bottom and I hung them up in the classroom!

The kids then followed a step by step picture and drew two koi fish. After using pencil then went over it with oil pastels and they then painted it with edicol dye!
