My class was at library a week ago when I saw a student's book. The cover was similar to an art project I have done in the past but different (click here to see!). I knew I had to bring this to our Three Pigs unit of construction.
I love the purple background and multicolored windows.
What you need:
Purple, black and assorted colored construction paper. I prepared the paper by cutting the black paper into various sizes of rectangle for the skyscrapers. I cut the colored paper into assorted sizes of squares and triangles.
STEP ONE: Glue down the black rectangles onto the purple paper.
Create a skyline.
Fill the page to create the skyline.
STEP TWO: Add windows. Add a few tops (just a couple – not too many!).
STEP THREE: With a crayon, add any desired details.
STEP FOUR: Add touches of gold paint with a paint pen.
I’m always attracted to projects with houses/buildings for some reason. Anyway, these look great. Love them displayed together.
These are beautiful! I love the gold paint details! I may have to steal this idea! Thanks so much!
