French Impressionists

I asked the kids to paint a jungle.  This is what I got.

Those brownish/blackish spots on the top middle picture are monkeys and the red lines are snakes.  The picture on the top left is of trees – there are no animals in his jungle.  The one on the top right kind of looks like a rhino, but I don’t think that’s what he was going for, maybe an elephant?  I don’t know.  The middle right picture is also trees.

Watching the kids make these paintings was the highlight of my day so far.  I honestly don’t see anything remotely resembling a jungle in any sense of the word, but they did have a lot of fun making them and that was the main purpose of the activity anyway.
