Taste? No. Hearing? No. Touch? YES! Then I picked up and touched…
Kindergarten Lichtenstein's in Primary Colors!
This has been my new favorite Kinder project this year... one I pulled out of a hat 10 minutes before they were coming.

First day, we talked a lot about primary colors and the color wheel. I showed them the three Lichtenstein paintings below and we outlined the sun in blue and painted the rays. That was…
