Ovals by Sarah L Schuette

Summary: Ovals are shapes that look like stretched-out circles. Learn all about ovals, where they are found, and what they can do. Observe the ovals all around and check out Ovals today.

Oo is for Ovals


- Oval Template (cut ovals all around a piece of construction paper)
- Watercolor paint and brush (or any paint would work)
- Construction Paper

To Make:

1. Make Oval template by cutting ovals all around a piece of construction paper.
