Hand Print Calendar! These are so much fun! I give them to the parents at the end of the year as a gift, and they just love them. This is the poem on the front. You can make up your own poem, or find some on the internet that go with your handprint as in examples below.
Student Vase This is so fun to do for a principal, for a teacher leaving, secretaries, or a raffle. Take an old vase and do each child's fingerprint, and turn it into a bee, ladybug, caterpillar, dragonfly etc. Write the child's name above their fingerprint and paint grass!
Balloon Painting. Each child gets a balloon and paints with it however they choose.
Paint Samples are FREE! You can do any shape, design, or cut out you wish. YOu can use them for book marks, words of the week, sight words, spelling words, or Just decorate with them.
Pizza Box Portfolios. Each child has a pizza box. They can paint it and decorate it however they choose. You can send it home for the year, and have parents put "special" Pieces of work in there to keep!
Texture Brushes You can use whatever you want for the handle, like a clothes pin, or a dowel rod. And use different types of textures for the brush part on the head.
Rain Stick a Child can make This is a gatorade bottle. Students drop toothpicks into the bottle and then add rice. As you turn the bottle it will sound like a rainstick.
Find some large boxes, you can even paint them. Then let children display artwork on them. These can be used when you have ran out of wall space. These boxes can sit anywhere!
This is one of the neatest Art flip charts I have ever seen. You can put it in a center, and students can either read and follow the directions, OR they can follow the pictures! Students love this because they can do it all by themselves! It is large and sits on a desk, and flips.
