As much as I love the hands-on activities and crafts in our My Father’s World Kindergarten Curriculum, I was not very good about doing the Words to Remember badges with my daughter. So, I came up with something a little different for the boys. I created printable art/copywork pages for them to work on their penmanship while creatively depicting the Words to Remember.
This is the Lesson 18: Zz for Zebra page from one of my older boy’s kindergarten school year.This project was a little messy, but a lot of fun! We used a box, black paint, tape, a few marbles, and the zebra coloring page.
1) Tape the backside of the zebra onto the base of the box. (We cut out our zebras first, but in hindsight, I think we should have cut the zebra out at the end of the project after the paint dried!)
2) Squeeze the black paint into the base of the box and drop in a few marbles.
3) Now the fun part! Move and shake the box so that the marble rolls around in the paint and adds stripes onto the zebra.
4) Let the zebras dry and then adhere them to the copywork pages.
