Crazy Paint – The Frog – Painting Mixed Media Art Lesson

This project is messy, but fun. Your students will love it and love you for allowing them to be messy. Crazy paint will give students an opportunity to use fine motor skills and allow them to express themselves with paint and texture.

Crazy Paint is for all grades and was inspired by the author Eric Carle.

    This was a fairly complex project which we completed in my grades 1-4 classroom over about 3 lessons. The final products were nice. It was so much FUN!!! The older students didn’t do the frog and made their own pictures.
