End of the year Craftivity

Tuesday, May 23, 2017
Welcome back to Wait for it Wednesday 

I'm looking at single digits to finish off my school year right now and I'm feeling a bit sad to see my 3rd graders go!  What a wonderful year we've had together.  I try so hard to keep the last few weeks very structured - the kids need it and let's be honest...I need it too!
So I pulled out this oldie but goodie.  In fact, I was telling my students that I haven't done this craft in probably 4 years.  It was so fun and they loved working on it this afternoon.  It's a popsicle craftivity.  To me popsicles remind me of summertime and so I gave them a prompt of summer is cool or summer is sweet because...

They had a blast decorating their popsicle and I LOVE how my third graders made them each unique and different.    It's very low prep - I ran off popsicles on solid and scrapbook printed paper and provided googly eyes, rafia, scrap paper, sharpies and let them go to town.  I pulled up mouth images on google to show them different ways they could draw a mouth as well.  It was a fun day and they loved taking these home with them.

They choose which googly eyes they wanted, whether they wanted rafia or eyelashes or dots...so creative!

If you think your students would love this to fill in a fun activity for your last week(s) of school you can grab it here:

Happy { almost } summer  friends!
