Today I’m posting my 3 favourite pins for the month of August.
My pins this month are all activities I want to do with my outgoing class in September. I like to do fun and easy art projects because … well, they’re fun and easy:)
To visit the original pin, just click on each image.
Isn’t this first pin beautiful! I just LOVE those colours. This comes from Growing a Jeweled Rose and is a very easy recipe using shaving cream. My class is going to adore this art lesson.
My second pin is from Crafty Morning. I love the texture of the leaves. And it’s so easy to get with the scrub brush. This would be a great art project to do by pulling the kids over to a small group table during free play.
My third pin is from The Reading Corner. Renee has tons of great stuff on her blog, most of which is totally free. I really love all her math games, too. UPDATE: Sadly, her blog no longer exists, but it’s easy enough to figure out this art project by looking at the pic below.
I thought her Warm Hands Cool Air art was quite unique. It looks fairly easy for little ones to do, although I think I’d probably give them a photocopy of a hand shape and then let them draw their own circles. I always find that the younger kids want to trace their fingers too closely to their skin so they end up with these funny skinny hands.
