My Firsties love all things paint and glitter (me too!) and although I don't have time for lots of "crafty things" I certainly make sure I do some. Cutting, gluing and creating? A MUST for five and six year olds, isn't it? These were finished in a snap, will stay up for a good six weeks and will look lovely in their memory books and on their fridges at home. Oh, did I tell you how happy their apples and trees make me feel? Especially the apple in the upper left-hand corner. :)
I love how all of the trees look so different. Unique.
I gave the kids a strip of brown paper and told them to design a trunk. Below are the first three trunks that were finished. They use the rest of the paper for their branches. Fun to see how they form their trees. If you are doing this activity, you only need a teeny tiny amount of paint. I put this plate in the middle of four desks and it was way too much,
Beautiful! Just like them!
Have you seen these Scotch tabs? AMAZING! No. Seriously.
I discovered them last year and I swear, NOTHING falls down. They are foam tabs. Double sided. Easy to use. They come right off and I can even reuse most of them again! A must have. I have two on each tree and they won't come down until I take them down. I got through our school Cascade order for $2.50 a box (480 tabs. I see them on Office Depot site for $10.50 a box. Boo. Glad I got through school order BUT I would $10.50 pay for these babies. (Look at ratings and comments and you may, too!)
Syracuse just won in overtime... Wahoo!!!
