2nd and 3rd Grade Fluorescent Geo Beads

We had a great time reviewing basic geometric solid shapes by creating them out of clay. We practiced making spheres, cubes, cylinders, cones, rectangular prisms and triangular prisms. When we were finished making our forms, we made a medallion and a little animal with the leftover clay. The next time we came to art, we painted our beads with this very bright fluorescent paint. We added pattern and design to each bead and then we strung them on a cord to create necklaces that glow under a black light. This has been a favorite project and the paint is just beautiful.
