So, I was looking for a way to channel the holiday energy of my 4th graders, and came up with this- we drew the basic outline of a holiday shape- I recommended pine tree, but due to some of my students beliefs, we also did snowman shapes and gingerbread people shapes. Then, I had them section their shape off, and draw a line design or pattern in each section. We looked at some Zentangle patterns for ideas. After they drew these, we added a little pop of color by using watercolors. I gotta say- there is something magical about the Zentangle. My 4th graders were so peaceful and quiet during this- and the results are pretty good if you ask me. After they dried, I cut them out and put them on green paper for display in the hallway.
