Hello Thursday October 11, 2018:
Happy Thursday! I was planning a fun art project geared toward Halloween using a simple egg crate. What can we do with an egg crate? You’ll find out! I’ll be doing this project while live blogging on the eve of October 25th (a Thursday evening) at 7:00 p.m. eastern standard time. Working at Lightbridge Academy taught me that art is a big part of the curriculum. It motivated me to learn more about teaching and planning art projects. There’s a process as a teacher or teacher assistant. What supplies do you need? Should we invite the parents to an open art activity day? Do the parents need to be present for supervision (is there a-lot of cutting involved?) If there is quite a bit of cutting, I turn to the wisdom of my Sacred Heart grammar school teachers (the best!), p.r.e.-c.u.t. I also think what, if anything, do the parents need to purchase to allow the child to complete this project? I like to give two weeks lead time. Some parents don’t like to rush or only shop once a month.
Ok! So what do we need for this project?
- an empty, clean, sturdy egg create
- white paper
- glitter (Halloween themed preferred)
- “safety-first” scissors (just something I say to remind children that scissors are not a toy!)
- a little music! I’ll post my Halloween playlist!
Where do I go for most of my supplies? Target, Dollar Tree, or Micheals.
Fun fact: I used to work at a Dollar Tree! I loved it! I miss it all the time! I was going to post a picture of my name badge but it’s floating in the wind somewhere!
