Watercolor insects

Today I finished my watercolor project with my 1st graders. The first class we experimented with techniques: wet, on wet, crayon resist, using salt, etc. Then for our next class we drew bugs, using our observational skills- I had a bag of plastic insects (thanks Deb!). I also read a Dr Seuss book about bugs and told a couple bug jokes- haha! Today we did the watercolor.
Any art teachers out there reading this? How long does a box of w/c paints last for your 1st graders? At least I tried to clean out the yellows!
Why was the baby ant so confused? Because all of his uncles were ants!
