Some holiday fun…

Standard

I love the winter holidays. I love the time together with family and friends. I love the decorations and I love the crafts. An art teacher I follow posted that she is not a Hallmark factory for her school and therefore does not do holiday artwork. I absolutely respect that but I do love making holiday art so I thought I would share some of what we’ve been doing since I haven’t posted in forever. 😳

Elf legs! Ornament piles! And Kinder Rudies! 

Snowmen! 

How I’ve been feeling this season: 


Some up close and personal time with Santa! 


Nutcrackers, Rat Kings, Ginger houses, and more Santa! ❤
Merry Christmas from the TinyArtRoom! 🎄👩🏼‍🎨🎅🏼

Aaaand BOOM, I’m back from a two(+) week hiatus. It’s been Christmas-ing all over the place and then we rang in the new year and I blinked my eyes and it was time to go back to work. Let the COUNTDOWN TO SUMMER begin!!!

But first, I’ll show you what I’ve been up to these past few weeks…

I decorated my house for Christmas! (Did you think I was going to show you art stuff?)

Piles and Piles and Piles

Standard
Piles and Piles and Piles

Of ORNAMENTS!

I found this picture on Pinterest a couple of years ago and I pinned it with intentions of trying it with my 5th graders.

I didn’t attempt it until this year.  Mrs. Crisco over at Color It Like You Mean It! also made these and they are so pretty.  The kids are loving it and they are doing a fantastic job.  Can’t wait to see them all displayed!

Rudolph’s Crazy Cousin

Standard

Meet Randy, Rudy’s crazy cousin. It’s okay – we all have them.
This is another great art/writing activity that I found HERE!  We made our reindeer today and though I did get started on the glittered noses, we will have to wait and finish next time while we write about them.  We made the reindeer and after gluing them together, we put them on a Christmas scrapbook paper patterned square.  I am offering red glitter or black glitter for the noses.  Some of the kids started naming their reindeer as well.  Examples: Crazy Connie, Wrinkle, Icky Nicky Nacky Nook, and Harris. Ha!  Funny stuff.  I’ll post some more pictures as we finish!

Elf Legs!

Standard
Elf Legs!

I’ve seen different versions of these elf legs everywhere. From painted to collaged to real ones! 😉
I ran out of time to do the witch legs at Halloween, so we decided to do elf legs instead and the kids are LOVING them! We made it all out of construction paper and then added the fake snow and some glitter for a BOOM effect. I’m pretty sure that the real elves would be jealous.
This is my version and I’ll be posting more tomorrow – so come back soon!
