Hawaiian Shirts

2nd graders have been practicing for their Winter Music Concert and will be singing a Hawaiian song about the holidays.  To help collaborate, students created Hawaiian Shirts with Flower Leis during art.  First students choose their shirt color and then stamped white paint using a flower stencil design.  Once dry, they cut out the shirt shapes and assembled adding trim and collar pieces.  To complete the look, students thread paper flowers onto yarn to hang as leis over their shirts.
