1. Fold 12" x 18" drawing paper in half "hamburger style."

2. On one half, mod podge warm color tissue paper.

3. Fold 12" x 9" blue construction paper in half "hamburger style."

4. Line a ruler up along the open edge of the blue construction paper. Draw a line using the edge of the ruler. You should have a margin drawn in basically a ruler's width.

5. From the fold, cut wavy lines up until the line you just drew.

 6. Open up and weave using the 1" strips. Using oil pastels, draw waves on top of weaving.

7. I actually went around and stapled these to the bottom half of the 12" x 18" white drawing paper (the one the students previously mod podged). This was a lot easier than the students gluing down a weaved piece of paper (because we all know not EVERY single tab was glued down!) and lining up the edges.

8. Draw a curve onto the green piece of paper. Cut out.

9. Draw in simple flowers and grass marks using oil pastels. Glue on top of weaved paper, lining up the corners.

10. Teach students how to draw a light house. I used tracers for the initial quadrilateral shape but then had students add in their own doors, windows, and light tower part. Color in with markers/ colored pencils/ crayons. 

11. Glue lighthouse onto grass.
