Yesterday I read my class What Does Peace Feel Like? and then we made our peace plates!
I LOVE these peace plates. They’re so beautiful but easy to do, and they work perfectly as a Remembrance Day art project.
I used plain white plates … those very flimsy ones from the dollar store. They have a light coating on them so that the tape will pull up fairly easily. I put masking tape on them ahead of time. I was very careful to make sure that all the edges were down so that no paint would seep through.
The kids used their water colours. All I told them was to cover the entire plate and that they could use any colour except black, brown or gray.
After their paintings dried, I carefully peeled off the tape, then outlined their peace signs with a black sharpie.
Couldn’t be easier!
Thank you for stopping by!
