Wishy-Washy Art, Christmas Art, & Gingerbread Giveaway Reminder


MRS. WISHY-WASHY ART

Here is an art activity we did this week to go along with Mrs. Wishy-Washy's Christmas.
  


...and a class book that's become a fast favourite


CHRISTMAS ART

Mitten Cards
These activities were led by a parent volunteer/former teacher. At one station, students made a Christmas card using mini clothespins, folded stock paper, elasticized string, and a mitten template.
  

Students coloured the mittens, cut them out, and pinned them onto the "clothesline".

'Stained Glass' Painting
At another station, students used different coloured paint in each section of a picture to emulate stained glass.



Christmas Tree Card

Students received a piece of scrapbook paper with this template on the back:

  

They cut out the strips and glued them onto folded cardstock, leaving a little space between each strip.
