This was a super fun Halloween art project I did with my Grade 4-6 mixed elective class- the famous "Witches Legs" you see all over Pinterest. I'm not sure who posted the original project but I looked at lots of different blogs for inspiration.
My students started off by painting a striped background on heavy white paper using tempera pucks.
While the background dries, prepare your legs and skirt. I pulled out my big scrap paper box plus grabbed some of the bright coloured copy paper from the photocopy room :)
Students went to town and needed very little assistance.
Once the background paper is dry, glue the skirt and legs on.
I find white glue sticks better to painted tempera surfaces.
I brought out all my little 'bits & bobs' for decorations: buttons, sequins, lace scraps,
stick-on jewels, glitter glue, etc. The cheap $1.50 bins near the checkout at Michaels are a great place to find lots of fun, sparkly, stick-on crafting items.
I love how they all turned out!
