How can I use this Tet Collaborative Art Pack?
Encourage collaboration and creativity using our Tet Collaborative Art Pack. It’s great for celebrating all the colorful traditions of the Vietnamese New Year with students in prekindergarten up through second grade.
In this art pack, you’ll receive a 25-page PDF to print off. It includes 24 coloring pages that will create a stunning picture of a Tet festival when pieced together. On it, you’ll see all the main symbols of the holiday: lion dancers, watermelon, lanterns, money envelopes, and children in traditional dress.
Simply print off the pages on paper or card stock, trim off the edges, and distribute to your class. From there, all you have to do is break out the art supplies.
You can use a single art medium or try a variety of crayons, colored pencils, markers, paint, and pastels. If you don’t mind the mess, you might even want to bring some glitter to make things sparkle.
Use the page numbers and guide included to assemble the finished project. It’ll look fantastic on a bulletin board.
