“There are people who can achieve huge success in life, while adding a bit of fun and a splash of colour to this increasingly grey world.” -Peter James
Check out these cute giraffes, a fun activity to start off the day! All you need to give your students is a pre-cut giraffe figure with yellow and pink construction paper. Then, you can prepare smaller rectangles of different colours for your little ones to cut into small strips. Dont’ forget the spots too- Glitter or scrunched up tissue paper would look amazing : )
Duration: 15-30 min
– Assorted Construction Paper
– Black Permanent Marker
– Tissue Paper
Time to dress up for Spring! Although elephants don’t really need raincoats, they look fashionable with them on and students get to have fun creating cool outfits 🙂
This simple character design activity is easy to follow along and involves colouring, cutting, gluing and creative thinking. It is also encouraged to add props..like the construction worker on the top left who is holding a log with its trunk.
And..of course, it doesn’t have to be an elephant. You can alter this project to give any character beautiful Spring clothing 😀
Duration: 30 – 40 min
– A handout with parts of the outfit: Raincoat & Boots, Umbrella
– A tracing sample of the elephant’s body
– Construction Paper
– Colouring Materials
“By being yourself, you put something beautiful into the world that was not there before.”
Check out all these beautiful Minnie and Mickey name plates created by my students! Each has its own personal style. I absolutely love them and hope you do too 🙂
– Construction Paper (black, peach, white, pink, etc..)
– Black & Red Marker
– Scrapbook Paper
” I asked the Zebra,
Are you black with white stripes? Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me,
Are you good with bad habits? Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times? Or are you quiet with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days? Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways? Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on and on and on he went.
I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes….again.”
– Shel Silverstein
Here’s a fun activity to start the day:
Draw a zebra with a black marker and then decorate with rainbow-striped colours!
How will your zebra look like? 🙂
