Boo! Did I scare ya? Are you scared anyway because the sugar levels in the children are going to skyrocket this week? Bring it!!!! We can handle it!! As long as we have some fun art projects in our back pockets we are good to go!! Here are two that I made recently with my class!
Scarecrow Sam: We read The Lonely Scarecrow in class and did some art to match!
You will need:
white paper places
yellow tempera paint
buttons or googly eyes
straw from a hula skirt or Easter straw
squares of material
black felt tip marker
In the morning, I had students paint their paper plate yellow, making sure to put their name on the back before they painted.
In the afternoon, I laid out all the materials and options. Some even decided to design their own hat! Love the creativity!!
They used white glue in bottles to put it all together!! I love the personality!!!
We also made Hanging Button Spiders!! These were so much fun!!!
You will need:
pipe cleaners - 4 per student
hot glue gun
clear beading string for making necklaces
Have students tie the clear string to their button first. Then they can thread their pipe cleaners through the button holes until they are cut in half.
Have students bend legs in an accordian shape pattern. Hot glue gun on googly eyes. Tie other end of the string to a bamboo stick - I bought these at the dollar store in the garden section. Use a piece of tape to secure the string in place!
My kiddos loved scaring each other!! We had a blast!! Happy Halloween!!
