Fun With Watercolors

Kids Artists creator, Jacquelein, has shared a wonderful project that allows children to learn about watercolor paint, as well as, the ocean. Be sure to check out her post for a picture of the finished product and artwork directions. She suggests having your students write their own poetry, but if you need a quick, fun project, here are some great poems your students can use!

At the Sea-Side By Robert Louis Stevenson

When I was down beside the sea A wooden spade they gave to me To dig the sandy shore.

My holes were empty like a cup. In every hole the sea came up, Till I could come no more. A Wave By Gussie Osborne

I sat on the beach and a beautiful wave Came tumbling right up to me. It threw some pink shells on the sand at my feet, Then hurried straight back out to sea.

It ran away swiftly and leaped up in foam; It bumped other waves in its glee. I think it was hurrying to gather more shells, To bring as a present for me.

Come to the Beach By Unknown Author

Come to the beach. Come to play in the sun. Come to splash in the water. Come to have fun!
