1. Using mostly cool colors, students painted swirling water on large pieces of tag board.
2. While the water paintings dried, we dripped watercolor paint on coffee filters for lily pads. A second way to do this is to use markers to color the lily pads then spritz them with water so the color spreads.
3 We glued the lily pads onto our swirling water and made the lilies out of squares of tissue paper layered and crumpled up.
The whole process is surprisingly easy and fun!
