I found this lesson at Deep Space Sparkle and created castles with 1st grade. We started by drawing simple castles all together on black paper. Then we used foam brushes and gray paint to stamp on our bricks. They did a great job arranging their bricks to look realistic.
Then we cut out the castles and glued them to a drawn background. We used old paint samples to add doors, windows, and flags. They are so bright and beautiful!
