Drawing is a great way for adults and kids to express themselves and to tune up some motor skills. It’s a fun way to practice creating dimensional works, to cultivate a specific style and to create memories that will last a lifetime. Handmade drawings always make the best gifts too! Let’s scroll down to see […]
It doesn’t have to be summer in order to enjoy ice cream or fruity popsicles, especially the paper kind. Today we are sharing a fun project using a variety of Hygloss Papers and Pop stixs to make our own splice of summer. If we can’t enjoy the summer weather now, then we are bringing it […]

Here’s a kids craft that can be adapted for any holiday or occasion. When working on Valentines crafts, of course, kids will make them in a heart shape, with reds, pinks and whites. These make great Valentines decorations for bulletin boards, windows, refrigerators or doors. And if your students write (or dictate for you to write) messages on the back, they can also be used as homemade Valentines cards.
My son Alex, three, can not pass a single leaf on the ground – let alone a pile of leaves – without stomping on it. Whenever this happens, our whole family breaks out into a song I learned when I was in kindergarten. “Crunchy, crunchy, hear the noise/ made in leaves by girls and boys. /Oh what fun to walk in leaves/ that have fallen from the trees/ crunchy, crunchy hear the sound/ fallen leaves upon the ground.” This time of year always makes me want to do fall crafts for kids at home and with my preschoolers in the classroom as well.
My bulletin boards aren’t always thematic. It depends on my mood and the ideas that hit me over the summer. This year I told you already, I’m really excited about my creations. They really add to the classroom and I can’t wait to have fun with them. They’re interactive and already familiar to the kids.
