|First the kids drew their pictures out with pencils -- the goal of this project was to include Frida favorite pet, a bird, and at least 3 pieces of fruit|
|Next the kids using oil pastels to color it in|
|MarioFan decided to just add the Mexican flag to his picture|
|And this is my attempt at the style:)|
It took a while to find a you tube video on Frida Kahlo that held the kids interest, we attempted to watch this one together, the kids made it about halfway before losing interest. I decided to watch it on my own once the kids left and found it very interesting. The kids found some of her paintings to be a little disturbing:). Please preview this video before showing it to your children as some kids might find the pictures disturbing (mine turned away from some of the paintings).
