Open-Ended Art Projects
I like letting the kids have a free-for-all on art projects sometimes. You should have seen how giddy they were to discover "googly eyes" in our art box. We read the story "Snowballs" where the narrator is using all different kinds of objects to make a snow family. We did something similar with free range over the art box. Some of the students make people with popsicle sticks or feathers for arms, used part of the mesh from who knows what for a dress and rope for hair. I just love to watch their minds work. Whenever they would ask-can I use this for... or can I make this color... my response always is "you're the artist"!
