Chinese Poem with craft

I am amazed to see how quickly Evan learn to memorize and recite the Chinese poems. Besides reciting the poem, I let him do some craft associate with the poem. This week, we are learning a poem about bee.

【蜂】 作者:罗隐




It is a easy craft. First, I let him draw and color few flowers. Then, he cut and paste them on a black paper. This is a collage technique.

Then, I poured some tempera yellow paint and asked him to do finger painting for the bee body.. This is a fun way to let small kid to experience the finger painting. I used some small brush to make the line on the bee body.

He used the white crayon to draw the wings on the bees.
