Color Robots - Kindergarten Collage of Shapes

 Kindergarten students created these fun collage robots while learning about shape and reviewing color. 

We started our project by using stamping different sized circles and dots to create a fun background. Students learned that you can paint with more things than a paintbrush. Plastic cups, paper cups, and cotton swabs can be fun painting tools.

Then students identified the shapes they could use in their robots as they painted them with a solid color. 

The next class it was time to put our robots together! Students glued their shapes in place, added details and embellishments with oil pastels, pipe cleaners, sequins, and plastic caps. Oh What Fun!!

This Robot is jumping for joy!!
