Art Detectives

This is one of those super-fast-by-the-seat-of-my-pants things (and my pants are most likely splattered with yellow paint, I don't know why it always seems to be yellow, but it usually is).  
Kindergarten was coloring their primary and secondary giraffes (an idea from another art teacher in my district) and I was so tired of "I'm DONE!" when they clearly were not, so I grabbed my little magnify glasses and let them be "art detectives" and look for the white spaces they still needed to color:

Worked like a charm.  I only needed to have more magnify glasses!


  1. Fantastic idea - I have a bunch of those magnifying glasses too! Thanks :)

  2. Thanks! I think I'm going to pick more up in the coming weeks to have at the ready.

  3. That is an absolutely wonderful idea!!!! I will be doing this with my young students.

  4. Thanks! Let me know how it works out!

  5. Me too, always reminding the children to colour up to the edges of lines. Will try this out, looks like it is the answer. Thank you.
