Anyway I've had this idea for a while now, and before I can change my mind I'm going to set out to doing it. So, I'm a T.A (sortof, kindof:D) and some times it's really hard to come up with a project that kids from all age groups will enjoy. So I want to dedicate this blog to 'crafty' art ideas, so other teachers can use them too because I know how hard it is after a hard days of teaching to summon the energy for art:). I'll post art projects we do with our art class and some pictures, so everyone can join in on the fun! I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know if you use them and how they went, and I'll try and link all the projects to the sites where I found them on. New ideas are also welcome as we are always looking for new and exciting fun to do with our children!
Yesterday we worked on our Hope For Haiti and Chile wall. I hung up a blue background and painted clouds and Hope for Haiti and Chile on there and then we set out to make our wool angels. I briefed the children on the earthquakes, and the extent of the damage etc, and then while they worked on their wool angels they thought about a prayer, or a wish they had for the people suffering. We're hung our angels on the wall and typed up our prayer and hung it up near our angel. The kids from Kindergarten to Gr. 8really enjoyed it, and it raised awareness of what's happening around the world and how much we have to be thankful for. Thank you for visiting my blog! Please bless it with a comment!:)
I'll post some pictures now, but I'll have to post the how to's of making the angels later as they are on a different computer.
