Our school's Christmas program had a tree theme so each kid made a Christmas tree drawing, and I add some nutcrackers and nativities, and displayed them all together in a triangle shape with a star on the top. For the curvy look on the bottom I attached the pieces onto a piece of yarn and adjusted it just so that they would hang evenly. Merry Christmas.
This is a fun and easy no mess craft. I bought some Washi tape and made some cardboard tags and had some wood tags. The kids really enjoyed making these gift tags for family and friends. Here's what you need:
Assorted Washi tape
Cardboard or wooden tags
Ribbon or twine

I got this idea from Deep Space Sparkle. Our 5th graders go to the pilgrim ship in Dana Point, so we looked at different tall ships and the differences in them and then painted these, one week was the water color back ground, and the next week was the ship and sails.

My second and third graders made scarecrows in after school programming last week. I looked on-line for ideas and I didn't see any really super cute ones, so I combined a few that I saw and like. I did a directed drawing lesson and since my sink isn't yet installed we colored them with crayons. They came out cute I thought....

It's a pumpkin kind of day. Although it's been 90 degrees here in So Cal, it was crisp over the weekend in MA. Hence some Fall gourd inspiration. I love teaching observational drawing in the fall and using gourds, leaves and acorns as still life. And if u run out of bulletin board space, make cardboard prisms.
