What do you do when you don't have one single class that day, but need to be at school? Today is field day so no classes.
#1 Clean my room it is starting to pile up.
#2 Sort art work
#3 Start mounting art work for the all too soon art show
That is my top #3 things to do today.
Since I missed last week's favorite art material pick I am going to give you one today: Tissue paper
It is fun to use and cheap to get. I buy mine at the dollar store. I get pastel, bright and the student favorite glitter. One great lesson is Eric Carle style painted paper and collage. I have the students create their own book.
Here is a list of several projects I use tissue paper with:
- Mask Making
- Jewelry making
- Mock Stained glass
- Holiday Christmas ornaments
- Spring Butterflies
These are just a few.
