Our Kimonos

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

We made these kimonos using the instructions on Art Projects for Kids. This week we are rowing Grass Sandals, so I thought kimonos would fit the theme since the book is set in Japan. In the instructions it said to use oil pastels...we did it a bit differently. We used oil pastels for the designs and then painted the whole kimono with watercolors. The watercolor won't stick to the oil pastels so we didn't have to be careful to go around the designs with the paints. You will notice that one of my sons did a rather unique design on his kimono...yes, that is a chicken kimono!
