Cherry Blossom Tree Scrolls

I did this with first and second grade and it was simple and turned out really cute!
First we looked at photos of Cherry blossom trees and discover the culture and traditions that surround Japanese cherry blossom trees.

First we used chalk to make fingerprint creatures (birds and monkeys) and outlined them with a fine tip black marker.

We used tissue on their finger so they could move the tissue over a little when they change colors and they don't get their fingers dirty. Then draw fur and feathers and details

I went around the room and painted a wavy line from top to bottom of their paper with watered down tempra, idia ink works well too. Each student had a tiny coffee straw and first blew the branched down the left side then turned the paper and blew down the right side. We glued a large popcicle stick on both ends and tied yarn on the ends

Then we used cue-tips to paint flowers (their favorite part!)
