On the last day of spring break we hosted a Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie marathon. We showed all three movies during the day, and in honor of Greg Heffley and his hatred of Lil'Cutie AND Zowee Mama! our Friday art activity was DIY Comic Strips.
Prep: All prep is optional. I used a sharpie to draw basic comic strip boxes, word bubbles and Pow!/Bam! explosions. Then I ran them through the copier and got 15 copies of each. You can find my comic strips here, here and here.
Process: Your imagination is the only limit!
My kid's didn't do too many actual comic strips, but they really loved color blocking the already drawn boxes. Maybe I should do a lesson on Rothko.
