For spring/ Easter I had first graders create tinted bunnies. We discussed how to create a tint before we did any artmaking. First I had the students draw a bunnie using a piece of chalk on white paper. (I like to have students draw with chalk in younger grades, because then they draw big, and don't spend all their time erasing and re-drawing) Then they got a color choice of blue, green, or yellow to mix their tint. They LOVED the mixing their own tint, a lot of oohs and aaahs could be heard. I had them sponge paint a background, add sharpie details, cut grass, and then glue everything. I hot glued the pom pon nose on for them.
