Every child decorates a stone and then adds a weatherproofing varnish. What an amazingly welcoming display! School counselors - could make it a great lesson on diversity & add stones to our school garden
Yo-yo painting--this looks so fun Fill a cut-off stocking with dry beans (I'll probably use rice, because that's what we have). Dip it in paint, then pretend it's a yo-yo and bounce it on a piece of paper. So fun!
I LOVE this mixed-media/self-portrait/I Am Poem project. This would be a great art project for the first two weeks of school (and up for PT conferences). Older children - write I am Poem - Haiku style.
