Arts and Crafts

Now as a teacher, I have found that arts & crafts is something I greatly doing with my kids! (Mainly because my lead teacher doesn’t do it). So I have taken it upon myself to plan out neat and exciting things for my kids to do. They always enjoy doing fun things and I can tell that they would much rather do these things than just being given a piece of paper and some crayons (I mean, come on, they’re 4.5-5 years old for Christ’s sake). Here’s a few of the art projects that we have done since November. I haven’t taken pictures of everything, but I’m getting at better documenting the cute things that we do so that I can share them πŸ™‚ (and save them for later!). For other arts and crafts ideas for kids, check out my Teaching Board on Pinterest!

Snowman! I found this template in a pattern book that we have and I just made several copies and then cut them out. Then I cut out the paper for them to use as arms and legs. The kids also got to color them and some made hats and scarves using the paper!

I found these ornaments on sale at Micheal’s a few weeks ago and couldn’t resist. We let them decorate them with glitter glue and beads ! Then we hung them on this tree.

I found this scarecrow idea on Pinterest too (except they made his face using popsicle sticks). My kids loved them and they turned out really cute!

Christmas trees! We used out finger-prints to make the ornaments!
