It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas


I am really excited to be linking up with Focused on Fifth for day 3 of the Unwrapping Holiday Classroom Ideas: Celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas event.
I love doing art in the classroom, but I'm not very great at coming up with my own ideas. So I do what all teachers do....scan the internet hoping and praying that someone has a great idea that I can handle. So I have been doing just that and here are a few of the fabulous art projects I've found:

This great snowman project comes from Create Art with Me. All you need is Crayola markers, oil pastels (although I think crayons would work too), and some water. I love the bright colors. You can find step by step directions and photos by clicking the link above.



You can find these art ideas on the Holiday Round Up at Deep Space Sparkle. Deep Space Sparkle is one of my favorite go-to places for art projects.


This project comes from Art Projects for Kids. I think it could be done in a variety of mediums. This one looks like crayon to me, but it might be brighter in oil pastels.


This project comes from the blog Drip, Drip, Splatter Splash. When you scroll down you, before you come to this project, you will also see a Grinch with a heart two sizes too small. It's a great project too.


These poinsettias come from Think Art NOW. They are done with construction paper crayons. I just ordered some and am dying to try them out. I think this is my project.


This project comes from Artsonia. It would be great for teaching shading. You could even use oil pastels.

I know this has been helpful for me. Now maybe my classroom can look more merry and bright!

Focused on Fifth is hosting 10 more days full of holiday classroom ideas. To see a schedule of what's coming up, click on their blog button below.
