    Spring Idea
    By Judy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I've used this idea in the past with younger students, but I plan to use it with my 5th graders this year. I will cut out a fairly large egg shape (about 8x11). Cut 1 inch squares of bright colored tissue paper. Students will plan a pattern and color scheme for their egg. Students will put a square on the egg, wet a paintbrush, then touch the wet paintbrush to the tissue paper square. Lift off the tissue paper and a square of color is left! Repeat until the entire egg is covered. Be sure to cover the work area with newspaper, as the wet tissue paper will discolor table tops.
