    1. Yes definitely! I did it with k-2nd. It takes a while though. I have ended up making several large warm color paintings for them to cut from. So it takes one class to paint cool colors and stamp hands, and another class (sometimes two) to cut out the pieces and glue it all together.

  4. This is such a cool project! I modified your idea and used it during our Summer Fine Arts and Math program to reinforce fractions. The students loved it.
