Bird Ornaments

The kids and I made these sweet little birds for the tree.  I got the idea from the teacher I was working with during my student teaching placement.

Materials -Felt, tacky glue, hot glue, glitter, google eye, string for hanging

I used a dove clipart for a pattern-1. cut 2 out of felt 2. tacky glued the heads bodies and tails together 3. put on google eyes, put tacky glue on wings -wherever you want glitter 4. shake glitter over glue 5. hot glue string to back -in between layers.
pretty and simple.

Jelly Jar Snowglobe

The kids will be doing a project like this for the Christmas season and since I had the jars I did one too.  My kids are making them tomorrow.

Smalll Jar -I used the little jelly samplers
Modeling Clay
Dish soap
Hot glue

amazingly modeling clay will withstand being in water.

make a base on the jar lid to put your snowman or whatever.
add a few drops of dawn to water and lots of glitter.
hot glue cover on
create base with modeling clay

it's that easy!

Who Says I Can't Watercolor?

Preparing a lesson for the 7th grade today that involves Snowman at Night book and creating a snowman with chalk which like the book shows light and shading.  I decided to do one in watercolor just for fun.  My best watercolor yet (not a big fan of watercolor).
Isn't he just the cutest...

Eric Carle Snowman Lesson for Kindergarten

Found these cute snowmen online for the kindergarten class to do -they expressed how much they wanted to paint last week.  Me and my three kids did these up today for examples for the class.  They had fun doing them.  My son really liked the camo paper I found for him.  My 18 year old daughter made one too and took her sweet time-hers is the first one.
