So, here's what I've made so far this weekend...and I have more projects in the works!
These big tissue paper pom poms just make me happy. They look like big flowers and will be hung from the ceiling somewhere in my classroom. I was surprised at how simple they were to make. Click here for directions. I have also seen kits for making them at Michaels and Party City...but that's no fun! Choose whatever colors of tissue paper you like and make your own.
If you're wondering what this is....imagine that it has antennae and a body (still working on those details!). It is going to be a Very Hungry Caterpillar made out of paper lanterns.
Click here for directions on how to make this darling caterpillar. I found inexpensive paper lanterns at Party City, and just used some colored cardstock I happened to already have at home to make his face. The eyes and nose glued on very well with a little modge podge (I would have used my hot glue gun but it's packed away at school!).
I'll have to do another post next week on the rest of my craft projects. Please share what projects you have been working on for your classroom!
