Which Picture Do You Like The Best?

On Monday afternoon, the Junior Crew kids are going to make some pictures like this. I made these ones to show them what they would look like when they are finished. Can you believe that that all we will use to make them is:
  • 4 pieces of coloured card
  • a coffee filter
  • a glue stick
  • a nappy wipe
  • Food colouring
  • a paint brush
  • a black felt tip marker

When they are dry we will exhibit them in our Virtual Gallery.

Do you like the picture on the top, or the one on the bottom?

Why do you like that one the best?
The Junior Crew kids are going to post comments, telling me which picture they prefer.
You can join them if you like!


  1. Hello Junior Crew from Virginia!
    I wanted to be the first to tell which picture I liked and why! I do love the symmetry in picture #2, but picture #1 reminds me of a King Cake. I am from Louisiana, and we celebrate Mardi Gras by eating King Cake. See if you can find out what that is and what it looks like. The top is usually decorated in colors like picture #1. Have fun with your art project and I'll be back to look at them.

  2. I really like both pictures. I can't pick one. I like all the random coloring of the first one, and I love the more formal design of the second one. I can't wait to see what the kids create. Will you share the directions so that we can try it too? It might be fun to compare our artwork!

    Stay cool in your heat wave. We have the opposite problem here. It is cold and snowy. brrrrrrr.

  3. The Junior Crew kids voted on which picture they liked the best. !0 people cast a vote by placing a 'Unifix Block' under the picture they liked the best. 8 people voted for the picture on the top and 2 people voted for the picture on the bottom.

  4. I really enjoyed painting the picture on the top, but I like the one on the bottom the best, because it has more detail and looks more interesting.

  5. Hello to our friends in Ms Wojtera's class. We are going to look up King Cake On the internet!
    Hi Miss Harju's class! We made some pictures today, and when we have finished them, we will post them on the internet with some instructions on how to make them.

  6. From Mrs. Harju's 2nd Grade -

    The drums are cool and they were loud! We had to turn down the speakers! But we loved it!

    Half the class likes the top picture best because it is colorful and beautiful and it makes our heads full of colors!

    The rest of the class likes the second picture better because it is just awesome!

    We like your whole blog!
