Crayon "Batik" Birds with 6th Grade

I'm not as happy with these as I am with the batik mandalas my 5th grade students did, but here is some more fake batik.

As the school year is winding down, I don't think I got as much effort from these students as I could have, but there are still some really nice ones in here. Also, I think the subject matter of a mandala suits the style of faux batik a little better. But, here are 6th grade's "batik" birds:
